At the beginning is a engraved stone sculpture.I found it very moving. Here are some close ups so that you can read the inscription.
The Commemorative Circle is lined with memorial markers for each of the victims of the crash.
This is the stone dedicated to Paul and Sheila Wellstone.
Michelle and I kind of each went our separate way in the memorial. It was very peaceful, serene and for me very moving. I still remember very well where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news about the crash.
For more information on the memorial which I recommend that you visit if you are ever in north Minnesota check out this article from MPR http://news.minnesota.publicradio.org/features/2005/09/25_hemphills_wellstone/
