Very pretty setting and contemplative. Kind of eerie when you get close to the site. I do wish to the trail went closer to the ceash site. You can stand about 2000 feet from the actual site where the plane went down. You can see where people have gone off the trail to explore the area where the plane went down. Maybe in the fall or winter I will do so but too many bugs and ticks today.

I always stop here when I am on the Range. It is beautifully constructed with signs about PW and seating at various areas as you walk through the forest. Tributes to his family and staff who died as well. Very moving.

Don't expect anything fancy... the Wellstone Memorial is simple and unadorned. It is beautiful and a nice place for reflection on the life of those lost. Tucked into a wooded area near the crash site, each person who died that day is represented with a beautiful plaque and a large rock. All of the rocks are located in a small circular path. There is also a separate short path that takes you near the actual crash site. Our family very much enjoyed our visit. I think Paul and Sheila would approve. But bring some mosquito spray - the bugs can be terrible!

I was really impressed with the way this memorial was done. It told Senator Wellstone's story and presented his views very well, without being overly political. Any Minnesotan of either party should visit this memorial.
