A Boise long time resident is in the news today for painting the famous Table Rock 'B'. In Bryan McKee's 48 years he has painted it 9 times. The 'B' was a gift to Boise given by Boise High School students back in the 30's. It is a capitol 'B' painted on the side of the hill. It takes about fourteen gallons of Latex high gloss white paint to do the job. The area is called Table Rock and has long been a place where teens have gone to park and party and peope of all ages have gone to hike in the southwestern Boise Mountains(foothills). It is located just above downtown Boise. This is my hometown. Have lived here for 57 of my 64 years. Do you have a popular area like this in your hometown or where you live now?

It's so sweet of the students to give that gift to Boise. Is Boise the teacher? I can't think of any popular area like this in my hometown or where I live now. I am not so familiar with all those attractions.

@celticeagle Sorry, I misunderstood it. I guess the students who painted that would be so happy to visit there.

I am trying to think of anything significant that I could share about our little town. We do have a monument. I have been up in the monument several times. Why is beyond me because I am afraid of heights.

Sometimes we must try our limits.

Heaton Park in Manchester is one of the biggest in Europe and always seemed to be the popular teenage hang out area when I was growing up

I have two favorite places to go our in little state. One is Roger Williams Park in Providence. I've been going to that park since I was a teenager. I would bring a book, or food for the ducks, and sit and enjoy the quiet of nature. The other place I enjoy is one of the beaches in Newport. Again - nature. I used to go to one of the lighthouses and just sit and, again, enjoy nature. Those are the places that speak to my soul.

That's a nice place to hike. I live in a small quiet town, but most town residents use our walking trails and trails in the woods behind my house. It is only known for the number of screenwriters and doctors from Yale who choose to live there. It also boasts two great schools for college bound kids.

We have a Lake near where we live. It is a famous picnic spot for families and had been for as long as I have known. There are boat rides available too. The there is a large Town Park which is another spot very much popular here.
