The National Arboretum in DC – Stuck in Customs

The National Arboretum in DC

I had extra time this afternoon so I got into a taxi and went over to the National Arboretum. It was my first time there and I didn’t know what to expect but I was really blown away by the variety. The park was immense and I am convinced that I walked somewhere between 8 and 10 miles. I took a lot of pictures and it will take a while to process them all, but I put a few beneath. The first one of that honeybee is worth a zoom to Flickr to see the larger sizes (click on +All Sizes above the picture), and the second one has some columns in the lower left that were the original columns from the capitol back in the 1800’s. The third one is a small Vietnamese child that apparently made a wrong turn in Hanoi.

By the way, there is no food to be found anywhere inside the arboretum, so you will have to live off the land.
