As you can see in the first photo below, the memorial is situated in a beautiful location on Pine Mountain overlooking a beautiful valley below.
As you can see on the right edge of the below photo, the memorial is still under develoment.
Below is a close up photo of the above brick paver memorial sidewalk.
The below photos show the above two memorials and behind them the vertical memorials with individuals named on bricks.
On the extreme left edge of the above photo, in the far distant backgound, notice a wooden building with a green roof.
Below are close up photos of this part of the beautiful Veteran's Memorial Park.
'Double Dipping', we were able to see two attractions in one location!
The Veteran's Memorial (see its flag at half-mast on the right below) is located beside Pine Mountain Ski Jump, one of the highest artifically created ski jumps IN THE WORLD.
We did NOT walk up to the top of the Ski Jump.
Repeat! Neither Patti nor I walked up to the top of the Ski Jump.
Below you see a concrete stairway to the bottom of the ski jump.
We did not walk down and then back up the concrete steps.
Repeat. Neither Patti nor I walked down and back up the steps.
The next two photos below show the landing area for the Ski Jump.
Pine Mountain is indeed a WORLD CLASS ski jumping facility. Each February there is a competition drawing contestants from all over the world.
In addition to the Ski Jump, there are two ski slopes for the non-ski-jumpers.
I came away from this visit with a new appreciation for ski jumpers!
A last farewell to the Upper Peninsula Veteran's Memorial and to the Pine Mountain Ski Jumping facility.
Smiles and Joy,
Patti and Cap
