On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
Highland is an Olmsted park, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, in Rochester. Every year, the Lilac Festival brings crowds. The park is designed so that visitors are not smushed together except at the food trucks and beer tents.
The park is situated on a hill with winding paths and surprising vistas. The city’s water reservoir is on top of the hill.
My cousins came to visit. Seeing through the eyes of visitors awakened me to the beauty of a place I often take for granted.
I’m going to allow the images to speak for me.
Lilac in the singular.
We kept finding surprises.
At the end of the day, the columbine were blooming at my house.
