1.22.11 Babson’s Sunset Rock

Halibut Point State Park
Antique Babson's Sunset Rock

It was 10 years ago that I began visiting Halibut Point State Park with a camera. There was almost no snow that year, but winter defined the primary season I enjoy at the park. (Although the summer sunsets are unique.) This is the park once called ‘Babson’s Sunset Rock, in the early 1800s, as people would pack up a dinner meal and walk down to sit (now the middle of the quarry!) to watch the sun go down. The more things change….
This image is from yesterday as the snow was ending, before the sun came out for pretty.
