Viewing Platform

A viewing platform set on top of a knoll in Millom Park, in olden times this area was once a deer park connected with the castle, but today it is a forestry plantation.  We had set off for a walk in sunshine but as can be seen from the photograph by the time we reached this point the weather had changed.
The viewing platform is a sturdy structure but with a nice shaped struts. On a clear day there are good views of the hills
and the estuary, but as you see this was not a clear day so I concentrated my happy snapping on the viewing platform.  A few years ago the fir trees had grown tall obscuring some of the view but 
the chain saw has been swung so now the knoll looks quite desolate. I imagine they will replant but this coming summer will soon green it up.
In the meantime the views will be magnificent, weather permitting.  I must pick my day better next time.

Thoughtful to have this viewing platform - a great idea for prairie country...

We have a viewing platform at the bird sanctuary where you can see out over the marshes for miles! It's not as nice as yours (I love the old wood) because it's made of steel with open steps, not so bad going up, but he** going down if you're afraid of heights. The view is always worth it, though.
