JCP-w-SmokyAs we have moved across the state and towards the border of Arizona and New Mexico, we will end the first part of our tour.  The next phase of our travels will take us across the nation and into Washington, D.C. where we will deliver the Capitol Christmas Tree 2009 to Congress on November 30, 2009.  All these months of planning have materialized and I can hardly believe we are actually doing this!

The mornings are turning chilly and this makes our Foresters very happy.  They worry about the condition of the blue spruce every moment and cool, damp weather is what they want.  Imagine your own Christmas tree and having to vacuum up dead needles.  Well… this tree taller than a seven story building could pose a herculean task for even the best Hoover.
