My Favorite Benches

Ailsa from Where’s My Backpack weekly theme is benches.

My favorite benches:

I am a book junkie and the library is one of my favorite places to visit on my lunch hour. This bench is featured in a small garden by the main entrance.
Library Bench

I often walk along Mark Creek and there are two benches where I can rest in solitude and listen to the sounds of nature and the bubbling of the creek.

The last bench that I enjoy using is on the Butte about a forty-five minute hike from the highway. The bench sits under an ancient tree and provides a magnificent view of Mt. Fisher and the Steeples if the cloud cover is not obstructing their view. A wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of nature.

  1. The last picture would be my most favorite place to sit and contemplate the landscape. Gorgeous place.

    What a magnificent place simply to sit and think. The mountain looks exquisite and the tree just says it all. Just a wonderful sense of symbolism in that image.
