Like most people, Eko and I love trees. What type of fig do we like best? The Wonderboom. The coolest African tree? The Baobab. Our favorite fictional tree? The Giving Tree. We can talk to you about trees all day, baby! If like us, you are a connoisseur of photosynthetic lifeforms, then we have the perfect spot for you in DC – The US National Arboretum.
If you like boring trees, the Arboretum is not the place for you
Although I’m still not entirely sure how you pronounce the word Arboretum, Eko and I had a fun time getting lost amongst its trees. Leashed dogs are welcome in the park, and the paths are a great place for a walk, run or bike ride with your dog.
It’s raining trees!
Trees are awesome, but I would have preferred the dinos stuck around
You will have “Rhododendron kiusianum” at the Arboretum
We had fun at the Arboretum, but it’s Friday afternoon and I can tell that Eko is itching for some off leash time. We’re going to check out the Congressional Cemetery Dog Park (I swear it’s a real thing) around 5 o’clock, so come stop by and hang out for a bit after work.
