A few months ago, before I came out here, I SWEAR everyone I talked to would go on and on about the world famous cherry blossoms in D.C. and how lucky I was to be in D.C. during the cherry blossoms. They were so built up in my mind that I basically thought, "Man, these cherry blossoms must be made out of gold or something!" The build up was UNBEARABLE! I really didn't understand why cherry blossoms in D.C. would be so much cooler than the ones in Utah. On Saturday after our race, my sister and I walked around the national mall and experienced the cherry blossom amazingness. I decided they are so cool, because they accent the cool monuments and features of the city. Here are some pics I took on my phone Saturday. They were pretty sweet! I was sad to hear they don't last very long!
