Sunlight in Rock Creek Park

Virginia and Maryland are known for their forests while DC is known for its monuments and classic architecture. However, the District also boasts a beautiful forested area as well called Rock Creek Park. Surrounded by residential neighborhoods and located near the center of the city, Rock Creek Park offers visitors winding roads, creeks, stone bridges, wildlife, horse stables and of course, scenic treescapes. Luckily, my first visit to the area followed a snowstorm, and thus I was able to enjoy the sunlight cascading through the trees and reflecting off the snow-covered ground. Looking at scenes like this one just makes me want breathe deeply and savor the chilly, yet crisp air.
