A Bench With a View

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Long Ridge road ends at this vista point. A stone bench has been constructed here to commemorate the late Pulitzer Prize winning author and noted environmentalist Wallace Stegner. Take the time to sit and view the majestic vista before you. If you have come while the poppies are in bloom, you will feel as if you are in the movie "Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy and her friends have fallen in the field of flowers before reaching Oz.
