Destinations: Cherry trees are in bloom at the University of Washington

It's the annual blooming of the cherry trees at the University of Washington. The trees are located in the Quad - the courtyard within a rectangular arrangement of gothic style buildings on upper campus.

The Quad itself is very picturesque with geometric pathways criss-crossing the area between the buildings. When the cherry trees are in bloom, it's a photo opportunity waiting to happen. Others are content to sit and enjoy the day.

The trees were moved to the Quad in 1963 and are over 60 years old. The trunks show their age.

Wayne Pridemore was there on what could have been Family Day. The pathways are full of strollers and young families.

Young men take photos of young women with a backdrop of blossoms.

Professional photographers take advantage of the perfect setting.

Moms show their babies the beautiful flowers

And kids and dogs just enjoy the walk.

And the sun, being cooperative for once, shines down on them all.

The north entrance to the University of Washington is at 17th NE and NE 45th St, Seattle 98105.
