I thought I’d share some photos of Bowmont with you. I know I keep saying how beautiful it is there, but I thought I’d prove it to you! These photos are from September of last year, so right now most of the grass is golden, but there’s still lots of berries and brightly colored bushes all over the place.
This is Waterfall Valley. There’s a boardwalk down there that leads to three little waterfalls and twenty feet later, the Bow River. The waterfalls look like they belong in a fairy tale. They may not be very big, but they’re beautiful.
This is the view from one of my favorite spots to sit and think. It’s at the top of a bluff just above the waterfalls. This is the view to the west, with the mountains in the distance. Those two black bridges over the river are for trains, and it’s pretty cool to see them come by. I could sit here taking in the view for hours.
This is that same spot, but to the east. See that second rock from the front? It’s mine. There’s where I sit. Two beautiful views, an almost comfy rock to sit on, it doesn’t get much better than that.
There are a couple spots in Bowmont where it doesn’t even feel like you’re in a city of a million people. There’s no noise from traffic, there’s no buildings, there’s just wildflowers and birds.
So now that you know about one of my favorite places, what are some of yours? Do you have a favorite park, hillside, or tree?
