Tidal Basin

Washington, D.C.

April certainly becomes the Jefferson Memorial. It never looks better than when framed by the famous cherry blossoms that transform the banks of the Tidal Basin into a landscape of pink. In early April, these trees burst into springtime, drawing crowds of admirers. And it’s easy to see why: this view of a spring sunrise over the Pantheon-like memorial to Thomas Jefferson is enough to make you forever a firm believer in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
