Arizona's gift to the nation, the 2009 Capitol Christmas Tree, stopped this weekend in Oro Valley, Arizona.
Oro Valley is one of Arizona's newest success stories, with wide streets, beautiful subdivisions and shopping centers that eclipse most of what quiet old Tucson has to offer.
The tree, 65 feet tall, will be trucked to the White House, where it will be put on display shortly after Thanksgiving.
People came from all over to put their signatures on the side of the vehicle. This little guy, seven years old, didn't have a pen, but my Darlin' took care of that.
I had to get in on the act, and I made sure Active Rain got to go along for the ride. It's faint, but it's there!
When the tree is set up and tricked out with lights and decorations for Christmas in our nation's capitol, I'm expecting that one of you Active Rainers in the DC area will take a photo or two and post on your blog about Arizona's Gift, the Capitol Christmas Tree for 2009.
