Monumental panoramas of 5 places you can't visit right now

By now you've heard that the government is suspending all "non-essential" services thanks to bipartisan bickering in Washington.
The National Park Service will close more than 400 national parks and museums, including Yosemite National Park in California, Alcatraz in San Francisco, and the Statue of Liberty in New York. The last time this happened during the 1995-96 shutdown, some 7 million visitors were turned away.
