Hundreds of thousands of people each year travel to Washington, D.C. to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. It's a total gamble because you never really know for sure when they will hit their peak. Lucky for us, the National Mall is just over a mile away from our apartment so I traveled by foot (with Rusty) to catch a glimpse of the blooms. With all the tourists, it was hard capturing great shots without someone's head or arm in the frame! But I managed to snap a few I'm happy with.
