Leaving the memorial, the steps back up to the Rest Stop Parking lot. This entire memorial is on the backside of the parking lot, and it would probably be an accurate guess that most people do not even know it is here, especially if they did not notice the small sign up by the road. Both times that the two RV Gypsies were here, there was not another person around, even though the rest stop parking lot was full.
