Dennis Weaver Memorial Park
Yesterday I was able to visit the Dennis Weaver Memorial Park in Ridgway, Colorado. Vic Payne created an amazing tribute in 2007 with an anatomically correct sculpture of a soaring American bald eagle. The skies, during monsoon season, in Colorado, are often a spectacular sight to see. Yesterday I was lucky enough to see the park while the skies were in a state of ecstasy. The park is a beautiful tribute to a man who was one of earth's kindest caretakers.
A tradition, in the park, is the placing of prayer stones. The Payne sculpture is surrounded by these stacks of stones added along with prayers from guests of the park. These displays add a spiritual depth to an already reverent space.
