Although the site consists only of a small outbuilding, a chain link fence, benches and memorials left to the passengers, it is a peaceful, thought provoking place and I would recommend taking the time to seek it out and pay respects in your own way to the victims of the crash. During our visit there was a local resident who is part of a group of volunteers that did an informative presentation about the victims, the crash and the crash site. There is also a book to register your thoughts and visit. As far as facilities, there are portapotties (sp?) but there are no other bathroom facilities, food or items for purchase. If it is raining, there is no shelter except for the little outbuilding. The memorial is really in the middle of nowhere. The roads are twisty, turny and desolate. There are no signs leading to the site until you are within a mile of it. It is a very eerie drive knowing what the passengers must have been going through during the amount of time it takes you to find the site. Of course, for those who were not aboard the plane, it is fortunate that there was so little built up around the crash site. The site although simple is a great testimony to the fact that we should all find within ourselves the strength to rise to different challenges and the amazing things that people can accomplish when they do extend themselves. It is also a sobering reminder of the great sacrifices that people have made for others and the sacrifice those victims were forced to make that tragic day.
