Vietnam Memorial State Park, New Mexico
Don't know how this state park ended up where it did, but it's in a lovely, out-of-the-way part of the state.
Atop a hill. Beautiful vistas. The wind.
Shimmering aspens whispering in the perpetual hilltop breeze. They must look spectacular in the fall.
It's a place of beauty.
There are places for reflection.
There are places for sharing.
A gift shop.
There's also a museum, larger than one would suppose from the outside. It seems to pay especial attention to the veterans.
The memorial invites one to slow down, to be quiet for awhile.
