Washington DC at Christmas

Washington is a wonderful city during the holidays — all of the monuments are lit, and the Christmas displays accent the beauty.  As usual, we decided to take in both the Capitol Christmas Tree and the National Christmas Tree.  Mother Nature decided we would see a lot more snow than lights, leaving a white blanket across everything.  During the storm last Saturday we ventured to the Capitol with Emily’s parents, trudging over a mile in the foot deep snow and windy conditions.  The tree from Arizona did not disappoint.  Two nights later, the city was still paralyzed, and I headed over to the National Christmas Tree (It was too difficult to go to both on Saturday).  The tree was still closed, but the lights were still shining.  Here are some images and the rest are at SmugMug.
