Alaska Veterans Memorial

A few weeks ago, my wife and I were in Anchorage for a week of misc. appointments. One day we decided to drive up to Denali state park (About a 3.5 to 4 hour drive each way). On the way back we stopped at this memorial that we saw when we were driving up there. DSC03566

As you can see there was still snow on the ground and the place didn’t have any other visitors. I walked thru the snow, a few places almost waist deep, but the end result was well worth it. Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day that we reflect on those that gave their lives to make this country great. Please read each of the inscriptions on the walls. Some are more weathered then others. If you are in Alaska and have some time, if you are driving to Denali State park, I suggest stopping by here and seeing this memorial for yourselves.
