Yet Another Post Concerning Parking Lots

For some reason, at least 25 posts here have featured photos taken in parking lots or driveways.
Why do I keep finding stuff to talk about wherever I park my car?

Here's a unique lot (at Friedrich Nature Park) that looks like it was made with cinder blocks on their sides, so the holes are filled with dirt and grass/weeds/clover can grow.
An interesting idea that seems to work.
More scenic (and photogenic) than a paved surface, sturdier and less muddy than a grass field.
Best of both worlds.
I give it an A+, and the park itself is pretty awesome, too.
I have only hiked a half-mile of it's extensive trails so far and was amazed at the diversity of ecosystems present.
Can't wait to see the rest of it someday. Or days considering how big it is.

BTW, I shot another photo today that you'll soon see--in a parking lot.

Your parking lots are my street signs.

I've seen this kind of paving before. There's a very pretty little town called Niagara-on-the-Lake that makes extensive use of this in the residential areas. It really does make all of those ugly driveways disappear, and having rain absorbed into the ground is much better than running off into the sewers. I'm not sure how I'd shovel the snow off of one, but I suppose you wouldn't have that problem.
