25 February 2012 – Flight 93 Memorial, Shanksville, Pennsylvania

This is a departure from my usual nature related posts, but I don’t have another place to put it.

While up in Somerset, PA today, we decided to visit the Flight 93 Memorial in nearby Shanksville. It was 23 degrees and snowy so we did not spend a lot of time outside. There is a heated memorial plaza next to the location where the plane crashed into the ground. A ranger was there to greet visitors and answer questions.

It is still hard to imagine what happened that day in New York City, Washington DC and in Shanksville.
