“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Pack, jammed with tourists as it should be! Great area for the monument. Quite a few others in the are as well. A great tribute to a great man who died too soon.

“Very interesting to see artist interpretation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Design is very good (with walking between mountains) to get to front of statue. I dislike the location. I thought it was kind of out of the way (hid off to side) as compared with other memorials in the areas.
