Woodstock Festival Monument

Behind a nice row of shrubbery you'll find the monument. But for us, there was a guy and gal gazing out over the Woodstock amphitheater ground; she looked like she was getting dressed! Buttoning her top and then putting in earrings? Ugh! They were young enough to not have been conceived there and old enough to know better! It's not the '60s anymore for pity's sake! My Tip: Make some noise as you come around the hedges.

The Woodstock Festival monument gets repainted every year by a local artist named Mikey. He has a cat he named "My Kitty" because she said it sounds like Mikey.

The Woodstock Museum on Bethel Woods grounds is excellent and worth the $15/ person fee. If you're at the monument, there's a flat gravelly area downhill from it that was the location of the stage, bottom center to the large grassy "bowl." Museum is at the top. Free easy parking. Convenient facilities, too.
