Let's face it, last year's misshapen National Christmas Tree replacement (after the first one fell in high winds) left something to be desired. Instead of heading to the Ellipse, opt for the 73-foot-tall Engelmann spruce gracing the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The tree, which hails from Colorado's White River National Forest, has just concluded an epic, Olympic-torch-style road trip.
