Portland, Oregon builder of gardens, Jeffrey Bale, created this amazing 11-circuit stone labyrinth on Bainbridge Island in Washington State. Based on his blog site, he started this project around September 2013 and completed it around May 2014.
This is a labyrinth for the ages. It’s beautiful in every way. I can feel its power from the photo…it must be awesome to experience in person. From what I understand, the labyrinth’s location is only known to the locals per the wishes of its benefactors.
Along with being meticulous about his creation, his blog posts about his process and his intentions for each section were also well documented and well written (see all his blog posts between 9/2013 and 5/2014). It’s obvious that he put his heart and soul into the whole project.
About his creations he states:
My work is heavily influenced by my [world] travels. Everywhere I go I document beautiful things, with an eye for how they were made and why. There is a story behind every design. What inspires me the most is when art works in harmony with nature.

A definite must see when my travels bring me up to the Seattle area of Washington.
