One of the places in Denver that makes me feel peaceful is Washington Park. It’s one of the first places that I was familiar with, because it was close to my first home in Denver.
Walking there one early morning, you’ll see light is sparkling on the lake, reflecting the blue sky, trees, ducks that like to swim. If you continue walking around the park you will probably find a small bridge that can take you to the secret bench. It’s a green bench, the special one, yes the one that its behind of one of the oldest trees in Denver.

On this bench you can sit and talk with your thoughts and sometimes reach a deep understanding of you every day. It’s so magical that soon you can see many others beside you walking, biking, running, strolling, barking, flying; some others just like you singing and whistling with the fresh morning.
