Grand exit


While I was looking through my photos from the War Memorial Building, I realized I don't have a proper photo of the entrance. I hope this look out will do. Here you see the tomb of the unknown soldier again. But those grand columns really make the building.

What a noble structure! I'm glad they've left it the same all these years.

Agreed! The columns add grace, elegance and an appropriate solemnity in the context of the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Interesting to see. It definitely looks like a memorial.

You are right, as often happens contest is everything. The monument looks even more solemn and sober now.

Columns will do it every time.

Very impressive columns and a very nice photograph.

Re Leadville: It's the highest city in the U.S. at close to 11,000 feet. (I should say "town," 'cause it's quite small)...at one time was a huge mining community...still some mining there and more coming from what I hear.

Very cold in the winter!

Sorry, I exaggerated about Leadville's elevation - it's more like 10,152 feet. Still the air is pretty rare.

I agree with you about those columns. Grand, indeed. I like the sculpture with the farmers too, whatever it means.
