If you are in the area, make sure you make this trip. Scenery is beautiful - worth the walk. Take your time, stop along the way.

This is an important stop to learn more about our country. The rangers where very professional and accommodating to insure all could share in the experience.

I couldn't get really close because of the deep snow but could see there was nothing to see (no snow on the monument itself)
