Capitol Christmas tree makes an appearance in Colorado

DENVER — A major piece of Colorado is getting some national attention this month.

The U.S Capitol Christmas tree made a stop in Denver today, just one of its many stops on its journey to Washington D.C.

It was a great opportunity for locals to get an up close to take a look at a big piece of Colorado. The tree was picked out from the White River National Forest, and made a stop in Denver Sunday.

“Ithink it`s pretty cool to see it here and know it`s going to be going up at the White House,” said one onlooker.

The tree’s 24-day trip continues Monday when it travels to Greeley. It is expected to arrive in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 26.

If you would like to follow along the voyage, the 73-foot tree has its own Facebook page and Twitter accounts.
