2019 Olympia WA Capitol Christmas Tree

2019 Capitol Olympia WA Christmas Tree



Here is this year's tree at the Capitol rotunda in Olympia WA. The 34-foot Noble fir tree is outfitted with toys and games, keeping with this year's theme of "Timeless Toys."  


When I was there today, a group was starting a tour. If you haven't taken a tour of the Capitol and grounds, I'd recommend taking the guided tour at least once. You'll learn a lot of fun facts about the building and the early beginnings of Washington State.


A behind-the-scenes note: If you go to see the tree, don't bring your tripod with you. I wanted to get some sharper photos but I was stopped at the door when I had my tripod with me. Poor Peter (my better half) was relegated to standing outside, tripod in hand, waiting for me while I snapped a few pics. Oh, the rebel I am - trying to bring a tripod with me inside the Capitol dome!

Good evening Francine. What a lovely tree in a beautiful setting. I wonder what they have against tripods. In any event......Merry Merry.

Security at government buildings is something else.  No doubt the tour is fun and educational. That tree is something else.  That is a great photo even without a tripod.

Good morning, Francine... the tree is simply gorgeous... but so is your Capitol Rotunda... wow! Worth a visit even without a beautiful tree.

Wow, good to know about the tripod. I would have tried to bring one in too.  I haven't taken the tour, but it looks beautiful. Nice tree.  D
