OGDEN, Utah -- For more than 50 years the U.S. Capitol has been decorated with a Christmas Tree on the west lawn, and this year's tree is from Idaho.

The 80-foot tall Engleman Spruce is 26-feet wide and weighs about 16,500 pounds. After it was felled in Idaho it began a cross-country tour, including a stop in Ogden. See the video above for a look at the tree on its journey to our nation's capital.
