Every year, Veteran’s Day sits as a reminder to all Americans about the sacrifice made by the brave men and women who have served our country. Ever year, many people choose to honor those people by visiting some sort of veteran’s memorial and arguably the best one in Northern California is the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden near Mount Shasta.
The Living Memorial Sculpture Garden is an exceptional 136-acre art installation and war memorial along Highway 97 on the Goosenest Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest. Created in 1988 by a dedicated group of veterans, the site is now maintained under an agreement with the USDA Forest Service.
Under the shadow of Mount Shasta, you can reflect on the beauty of the area and the sacrifice of veterans by viewing the Hot LZ Memorial Wall, labyrinth and ten sculptures by veteran and artist Dennis Smith.
Here are is where the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden is located:
