Small memorial, but definitely significant. Beautiful landscape and quiet area to memorialize such a pivotal point in time. Worth a stop if you are nearby. more »
Small but done so well I am excited we stopped to look. It was right next to the fire dept training center so we even hot to see some "rescues" in progress.
