Freshly extracted from its lifelong home in the Carson National Forest, the U.S. Capitol’s Christmas Tree made a brief stopover in Truth or Consequences on its way to Washington D.C. Thursday, November 14. The unique opportunity drew a large crowd of area families and citizens to the U.S. Forest Service’s Black Range Office parking lot to view the tree and to add their signature to the hundreds of others already adorning the truck’s side panels. The Christmas tree’s caravan made its way through downtown T-or-C to the North Date Street stopover, joined by Smoky Bear and Santa Claus. Once on site, everyone on hand gathered around to closely examine a portion of the tree visible through large plexiglass panels, before cueing up to sign their names or to spend a few moments with Santa.
