We rarely go to places where there is total silence. In our immediate area, if there isn’t the sound of airplanes passing overhead then you can hear busy traffic on a nearby road or trains hooting and clanging as they make their way along the tracks. So it makes a welcome break to go anywhere where the only thing you can hear is the wind rustling through the leaves or the birds twittering in the trees. That, for us, is comparative silence. Here are just a few of the places where we have enjoyed such a respite from the daily clatter of life.
Wasatch National Forest near Alta in Utah.
Antelope Island near Salt Lake City in Utah.
Off-season at Heritage Hill State Historical Park in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Snowy Range scenic byway in Laramie, Wyoming.
