in Columbia, Md

Overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi.

for Where’s My Backpack’s Travel theme: Statues

There was no great travel for me to find these two. The first came immediately to mind. One of Jim Rouse and his brother Willard. Though I really hesitate using the word visionary, to me that brings thoughts of using ‘funny mushroome’. But Jim Rouse was really a visionary in his founding of Columbia, Md. The first photo is of a sculpture of Jiom and his brother Willard by artist William F. Duffy. it stands overlooking  Lake Kittamaqundi.
