U.S. Capitol Christmas tree makes its way across the country to D.C.

The U.S. Capitol Christmas tree is on its journey across the country from Montana to Washington D.C. as it makes its way to the West Lawn of the Capitol for the Christmas season.

The tree comes from the Kootenai National Forest in Montana. On Monday, it made a stop at "Don K Whitefish" on its 15-day, 3,460 mile trek.

The tree is being hauled in an 80 foot long by 30 foot wide Hale trailer and will be making stops in 20 communities and six states during its journey.

You can keep up with the tree's travels on the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Facebook page.  Follow along and track the tree to see where it's going next!
