Last weekend was supposed to be the pinnacle of the blooming season for the cherry blossom trees. Fred, his daughter, and I drove down to spend some time walking amongst the trees. I think thousands of others had the same idea, too!
I really wish my phone's camera were better at capturing color and detail. Sadly it doesn't and I never carry a camera any more. The second photo is probably the best one I got all day.
I just loved the trunks of the trees. They had so much character. I wonder why the parks department doesn't alter ones where they're growing low and over the sidewalk. Maybe altering it would kill it. I'm not sure. They were really cool to look at though.
So, if you look at the top left of the map, that's where we walked. We never saw the welcome area until we were leaving. The large part that takes up the rest of the map is what we missed. It was kind of funny because when we got to the welcome area and saw the map, I noticed that there were a huge variety of trees. Not until I was making this blog post did I realize why we didn't see a variety because I thought we had walked around all of the trees. Apparently the different ones were in the larger area. lol I'll have to try to remember that for next year!
