Bench of the Week (31)


















This bench is located in a picnic and recreation area in the town of Banff near the Cave and Basin road. Cascade Mountain to the north is one of many views available.

RuneE of Visual Norway has an informal Friday meme of posting benches. Visit his blog to learn of other participants.

It seems that you may be able to watch soccer(?) and a beautiful mountain at the same time - I must say that I prefer the mountain.

This in one of many views from the bench? Wow. I could sit and look at the mountain all day. Nice!

The bench is rather ordinary, but the view is amazing!

Great view!

Wonderful place for such a lovely bench -- a bench that matches the view! I love both!!!!!!

An Effect of simplicity but great beauty.

I don't think it would be difficult for me to take a seat there and lose track of time.

The first thought would be is it possible I could climb that...:-)

Just wanted to drop by and say g'day from Australia, a warm, summer, soon to be wet xmas I'm told here.

Rain is good.

Best wishes

These recreation areas are used for all types of sports, though the one I'm most familiar with is baseball.

The view to the west is of Mt. Rundle, to the south, Sulphur Mountain and to the east, the Bow Valley.

I was so sure I'd left a comment. This looks like both a peaceful and exciting place.

What an absolutely gorgeous location, Barbara! (and what a great place to write)

Rick, there are excellent writing seminars to be had at the Banff Centre. One day I hope to be able to attend one.
