Long Description:
This bench is located at Lick Observatory at the top of Mount Hamilton. The plaque at the bench reads:

This bench is dedicated to the memory of a very inspiring woman. Wife, mother of five, respected educator and cyclist, Jeanne R. Meadows did everything to the best of her considerable ability. By her example, she inspired others to do things they would otherwise never have attempted, such as bicycling to the top of this beautiful mountain. At 65, she climbed it six times. One of the guides by which she lived is also appropriate to the University of California and to Lick Observatory:

"Just because something is difficult to do
doesn't mean it isn't worth doing."

Presented by the Almaden Cycle Touring Club, 1993.
