POW memorial sculpture.

This was a very wonderfully moving memorial. Will definitely be paying another visit.

Raising the flag.

Living Sculpture Memorial Garden

A very nice memorial, actually for all California verterans. A walkable and ADA accessible maze of free form sculptures. There are also some headstones worth pondering.

Living Memorial Sculpture Garden

Just north of town on highway 97, up near Mt Shasta is the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden. A monument to Vietnam and Korean War vets. This place is quite isolated and especially nice when there is some snow on the ground.

[David Waite, 11/01/1998]

The large welded metal sculptures are humanoid abstractions. Remember, there is still nothing funny about the Viet Nam War. The garden is 1 mile south of Military Pass Rd on Hwy 97, north of Weed, watch on west side for long unpaved turnout, entrance is in middle of turnout.
