Freelance photographer Tim Murphy takes us to Lincoln Memorial Garden along the shore of Lake Springfield. The garden, which was dedicated in 1939 and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1992, is the perfect escape and get back to nature.
The living memorial to our 16th president changes with the seasons with native trees, wildflowers and prairie plants. Wooden benches etched with the wise words of Lincoln provide a relaxing retreat to watch the sun rise and fall. And be sure to keep an eye out for butterflies, deer and other critters along the miles of footpaths. Visit www.lmgnc.org for more information about the garden.
