The Local Dish: Halls Hill Lookout

I recently visited a fabulous park on Bainbridge Island called Halls Hill Lookout. If you have not been here, I suggest adding it to your weekend plans immediately. It is the perfect place to meditate on the island, complete with a beautifully designed stone labyrinth. According to a recent article on Inside Bainbridge, it is estimated that the builders "collected some 25,000 pounds of rocks for the labyrinth from Bainbridge Island beaches, poring over shorelines for the rights shapes, sizes, and colors, mindful not to disturb beach creatures in the process."

The benefactors wish for it to remain a place of peace primarily for locals, not a tourist attraction. When you visit it, which I hope you will, you will see why.
