Alpine Meadows panorama
A panoramic view from the viewpoint trail in the Alpine Meadows rec area of Manning Park. I sat on the bench in the foreground for a while and ate my picnic lunch, listening to the wonderful silence interspersed with the occasional breeze sighing through the trees. Nothing but air for miles in front of me.
You can't get true silence in the city. When the breeze quieted, the silence was profound here. Very relaxing.
