NPS in context

From the historic Washington landmarks in the Garden Court, we moved on to the West Gallery, which housed an enormous Douglas Fir Christmas tree decorated with national park ornaments and a model of the Old Faithful Inn and geyser, along with the front of a locomotive for kids to play on.

I donít normally like posting two images of the same scene, but I wanted to show that the NPS tribute wasnít as miniature as it seems below. I canít, however, explain the gigantic poinsettia!
