The weather started out cool but fair. After our stop for lunch and our last 30 or so miles of the ride to the memorial, it started to rain. We did the tour through the visitor center before riding to the hotel and dinner.
The next day dawned and the sun returned (mostly) so we rode back to the memorial before starting for home. We were able to walk to view the crash site, debris field and Wall Of Names. A moving experience.
If you visit, we spent the night in Somerset, a short ride from the memorial. Food recommendations - for dinner we ate at the Pine Grill and at the Summit Diner for breakfast. Both excellent and reasonably priced (and across the street from each other).
That place always gets to me. I have visited several times. The visitor center is very powerful. Like I said, I have been several times but have yet to listen to the last calls from the passengers and crew in the visitor center. I guess it's just too much. Tremendous feel of reverence and respect. You can actually feel like you are in a special place. If I ever get another tattoo it's going to say "93. Let's Roll". I think history is going to remember that that moment was a turning point for our country, when we said, "Damnit that's enough". Thanks for sharing your pics and experiences. Be safe.
