I got a chance to take a walk over by the U.S. Capitol yesterday to see the cherry trees in bloom on the Capitol grounds. It was delightful … and not too crowded. Most of the tourists coming to see the trees in DC go to the Tidal Basin, and don’t know that there are cherry trees in other places in the city that are just as gorgeous.
I generally avoid going to tourist places in DC during peak tourist season, which has started in earnest. However, I work in the city and there are so many things that are nice to see during Spring that I still try to get out to see them. DC is such a walkable, beautiful city, especially in springtime.
I posted more pictures that I took here on my website.
