Looking north along Atwood Avenue.




The memorial is located at Hines Memorial Park.

One of the Wisconsin nightmares! Summer road construction
with no warning and no information regarding detours.
This "detour" is to a footpath . . . I spent one hour trying to figure
out how to get to Hines Park. The answer was another road
10 minutes to the south. What a mess!!

Like a visitor to the area has any concept of what this means!


The memorial is located at Park Falls, Wisconsin.
