Planter benches. . .

I don't know how I missed these benches before. . . they are near a bus stop I use frequently. I discovered them when I was hurrying to get to the bus stop and cut across this parking lot! Of course, I had to stop and take a couple pictures . . .
and yes, I made my bus on time in spite of the photo delay! I found out today, the lot belongs to a gasolne company.

Unique design for bench

I found this one accidently when I wasn't looking for benches but this is the best shot I could get of it. I find the back design very interesting.

Table/Benches Duo

I saw this first through the slits in a fence and actually went up their driveway to peek over the fence to take the photo of the benches I found unique and interesting. I was afraid to stay long and compose my shot better but I got the main thing anyway.

Bird Watcher Bench

I found this tiny bench in a yard that had a multitude of bird houses. It is probably the smallest bench I have seen.

Mount Rainier Visitor Center Bench

CLICK on to enlarge for a better view.

Nearing the old visitor's center that is being replaced because of impracticality for this region, is this beautiful plaza that is surrounded by benches in a circle. This bench area, unlike the one in the header that is located in the same area, has a slate "flooring" which makes the curved bench an interesting place for a rest between hikes. It coordinates with the stone wall behind it beautifully!
