Not Just Trees and Rivers - #Hiking - #SaturdaySnapshots

Although much of the joy of hiking comes from walking among beautiful trees and along pristine rivers, I've also encountered interesting man-made delights along the way. Here are photos of a few of them.

  1. Interesting photos. I think the ski chair is my favourite.

  2. Some great sculptures. I love Seattle.

  3. I love that ski chair...and the bunnies. Everything is unique and delightful. Thanks for sharing, and here are MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS

  4. I never know what we're going to encounter on a hike. They're an interesting and fun way to get exercise and see areas I'd never venture to otherwise.

  5. I loved these pictures of "oddities." Your posts are much appreciated since I don't get out to see such things. The forest ones remind me of the hills and mountains around my hometown of Darrington.

  6. What a lovely variety of fun encounters during your walks!

  7. I especially loved the bunny picture and the kiss. Great photos, Sandy.

  8. The bunnies are so cute! Thanks for sharing the photos.

  9. Love this post! So many cool things to see :) I especially like the ski chair and the playground for seniors - how fun! And very nice sculptures, too.

    Great idea for a slightly different & fun post - thanks for sharing!
