This Alpenglow Park bench in Bend, Oregon is unique. Park designers used large pieces of columnar basalt to create this trailside retreat. In the distance, you can catch a glimpse of Pilot Butte, an extinct volcano.
After walking the trails at Alpenglow, consider walking to the top of Pilot Butte to get amazing views of the landscape of Central Oregon.

Nice framing of the beautifully lit volcano. 😊
Thanks! I’m glad the volcano is dormant. 😉
Me too. 😊
Beautiful to look at but I guess not comfortable to sit on. Haha
Yeah, you’re probably right! 😁
Thanks, another place to put on my list to see when we eventually make our way up there!
The 360-degree view from the top of Pilot Butte is spectacular.
Beautiful sunset. Bet those stones are cold seats at this time of year.
Yes, it was very cold!
