Secret Memorial

Postby jmbrooks8 » Sun Dec 08, 2019 11:06 am

Ever hear of SOLDIERSTONE?
Not a peak, but a secret hidden memorial built in Rio Grande NF, Saguache Co, CO.
Secret? Hidden? And yet first time I hear of it, watching the News while in Seattle, WA.
Articles written. YouTube video. And yet no publicized exact location?

Anyone been there? Where is it? Is it at least hard to get to?

I haven't been there, but it's marked on Google maps (though I don't know if the mark is accurate):

Looks like that is not accurate, since I stood on that exact spot in 2016 when hiking to Sargents Mesa from the N & W & along the CD.

Interesting! If I get to Colorado next summer, I should try to visit this.

Spot on JK, cool! Clear as day on satellite.
3/4 mi. NE of Sargents Mesa summit. No wonder I did not come across it coming from SW side.
Seems like a worthy visit someday soon.
