Rock Creek Park

Over my Spring break, I went home to Washington, DC and spent a lot of time in the forest that covers the middle of DC, Rock Creek Park. Since most of the parks in DC belongs to Rock Creek and I just went home over the summer, I didnt get the opportunity to spend time in a new environment but I hiked through Rock creek nearly every day. Ferns and poison ivy is really popular. Also, just before World War One, Tokyo, Japan gifted Washington, DC with cherry blossoms to help their relationship. They just recently started to bloom so for my break I came home to thousands of bright pink cherry blossoms trees. Thats definitely unlike my phenological spot in Burlington and I think the trees in Vermont are more adapted to the wind and cold. I also saw a Red Robin in DC which is a bird I have yet to see at UVM.
