Very moving tribute. Since it was November when we went there were no bugs, thankfully, but a lot of leaves. Signage takes you directly to the location. Just plug the address into GPS if available.

It is a remote site. Places like this spook my husband, but not me -- I love them. It is a little buggy, not horrible, just small ones trying to annoy you. I jumped a little when a small tree branch fell a couple of feet in front of me as I was approaching the site. Lucky thing my husband didn't see it. He would have run the other way!

Lora is right. It is inexplicably the buggiest place we have been in recent history. Another strange event occurred there. Our dog started acting oddly at the rock memorial. She did not want to go near it. Must've been the bugs.... or was it?

Directions are good! You will come up on it pretty quickly, and the only indication is a graveled area with a green sign that's says "Enter Only." There's also a manufactured home immediately to the right of the entrance.

Bring bug repellent!

A really nice memorial.

A winding path into the woods leads to a big boulder that marks the spot where country music star Patsy Cline's plane crashed in 1963. The rock was placed there in the mid-1990s, at the peak of Patsy's pop culture revival.
