Black and White Bench

This week’s entry for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CBWC) is any kind of seating.

The following photos are from a 2014 camping trip with girlfriends and hike on the Ice Age Trail in northern Wisconsin.

If you’d like to see the color version of the first photo and an accompanying poem, click HERE.

From the Ice Age Trail Alliance:

“More than 12,000 years ago, an immense flow of glacial ice sculpted a landscape of remarkable beauty across Wisconsin. As the glacier retreated, it left behind a variety of unique landscape features. These glacial remnants are now considered among the world’s finest examples of how continental glaciation sculpts our planet.

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.”

    Oh I really like your photos for this week. I checked out the color. Love the pink hat. I think though the black and white is my favorite. Ask me tomorrow and my opinion may change 😀

      Lol, I understand! I had the pink hat photo processed and framed for my friend. It turned out great, so the color version is still my favorite. 🙂

    Looks like such a cozy place. Would love to take a book with me.

      Take some bug spray too! We were fairly deep in the woods, where mosquitos love to live. But it was a nice, quiet place to be.

    I remember the Pink Hat Lady, I liked that post/photo. The black and white version evokes a totally different feeling. Maybe we need a black and white poem ???

    The Ice Age Trail! How very cool.
    Greg and I will be driving to Delavan, Wisconsin for a wedding next May, and after googling, found that the trail is @ 30 minutes away from where we will be (I think). I wonder if we can fit it in???
    Love the photos!

      If you can fit in a walk on the trail, Laurie, I say go for it. I don’t know what that section of the trail is like, but I imagine it to be just as pretty as the section I was on. Have a fun and safe trip!

        If you are nearby Delavan and Madison, maybe we can meet for a cold one!

      • bikerchick57 says:

        I’m about 90 minutes from Madison and at least 2 hours from Delavan. Are you staying in Madison or near Delavan?

      • LB says:

        We will probably stay in Delavan but Greg went to UW so we will be in Madison, too. After the wedding, we are heading to Minnesota for a bit. I’ll touch base in the spring about this and see if we can meet up somewhere. You can email me at and let me know where you are if you’d like
