Denise, it was such a shock! and when Gus and I first visited the memorial in 2004 we were moved to tears. I wrote a couple of poems and just posted one on my poetry blog.

Roy, you are welcome! Gus did a good job I think.

bobbie, thanks.

Carolyn, it is very nice and very solemn. I hope you can visit some time.

Sylvia, thank you so much.

Stirring photos-so well done!

I want a hat like that one of these days-I burn so easy with my Irish skin.

Kristin said...

Thanks for showing your world. It's historical and memorable at the same time. Those are some very unique structures.

Kathiesbirds said...

Larry, you can get a hat like that at Saguaro NP in AZ!

Kristin, those are some very unigue structures and so stirring and beautiful to see in real life.
