DENVER -- A major piece of Colorado is getting some national attention this month.
The U.S Capitol Christmas tree made a stop in Denver today, just one of its many stops on its journey to Washington D.C.
It was a great opportunity for locals to get an up close look at a big piece of Colorado. The tree was picked out from the White River National Forest, and made a stop in Denver Sunday.
“I think it`s pretty cool to see it here and know it`s going to be going up at the White House,” said one onlooker.
The tree's 24-day trip continues Monday when it travels to Greeley. It is expected to arrive in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 26.
