Bennington Battle Monument Bennington Vermont

This 306′ dolomite obelisk was dedicated in 1891 to commemorate the 1777 Battle of Bennington. The monument was constructed on the site of the Continental arms storehouse, the object of this Revolutionary War battle in which General John Stark led his troops to one of the first major American victories against the British. 

CBWC: Bridges

Submitted to Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Bridges

Two of my favorite bridges. The Mackinaw Bridge because I grew up in Michigan and have crossed this bridge many times. Actually before the bridge was built we had to take a ferry to get to the UP from lower Michigan. The famous Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma Alabama which we visited this year on a “Civil Rights” tour that I organized this spring.

One small step for tourism this year. We have been cooped up for over a year and this was our first travel adventure this year. Still not comfortable with international travel. This picture was taken around 30 miles from the base of Mt. Denali. We took an old school bus the Park provided to get that close. In a few minutes from here we saw a mama bear and her cub.We do have a trip planned to Iceland in November and we are hoping all things will be a go.
