DC in the fall is so so pretty. On Sunday, even though it was a bit rainy we drove to the National Arboretum… a huge open space/park in the Northeast. It is absolutely gorgeous. You turn in, and you are transported and you feel like you are in the middle of the forest. With all the trees there on fire with autumn, it was so so pretty. Here are a few pics.
One of the coolest things there are these pillars. These are the pillars that graced the of the US Capitol until 1957 when they did some remodeling/expansion to the front. Someone had the idea to place them here in the middle of the Arboretum.
The rest of the Arboretum is just rolling hills with roads like this meandering through.
There was also this awesome bonsai and crazy flower garden.
There’s something new around every corner here in DC. Julie and I are loving it. Autumn is in full swing, and we’re coming up on the greatest time of year. The Holidays!
