Such negativity for such beautiful scenery!

What time were you there? I want to avoid the crowds in the worst way!

I think your window of opportunity has passed. The Cherry Blossom Festival starts tomorrow and even on a weekday sunrise the place is going to be jumping-it was pretty crowded this morning with photographers but there were only a few other folks until the busses started unloading at 7:30. From now on the busses will be unloading before sunrise.

Hope for bad weather.

Perfect...

How long will they be in bloom for? And, where can I park and ride from?

-Rob
What am I, the Shell answer man?

I'd say park in Virginia out by National Airport, take the Mount Vernon Trail and cross the 14th Street Bridge which lets you out right in the center of the madness.

BTW the official Cherry Blossom site says they are expected to peak from April 3-5 and bloom until the 12th.

I'll stop by in my big black Anderson bus and blow stinky diesel fumes all over ya!!
Actually those trips don't fit my schedule so I never do them.
