Somber Day at the Flight #93 Memorial
Lens: 18-135mm Camera: K3 Photo Location: Near Somerset, PA 
Posted By: Geodude, 10-04-2018, 10:52 AM

On an overcast, rain-filled day, we visited the 911 memorial in SW Pennsylvania. As the morning progressed clouds began to break up and let spots of sunlight through. This memorial covers several hundred acres over a reclaimed coal strip mining operation. Included photos show the singing tower which will hold 40 chimes for the 40 passengers and crew (minus the terrorists). In addition is the memorial area including the Wall of Names of the passengers and crew. Beyond the wall through a closed gate is a large boulder marking the impact site. Above the site on a hill are two massive walls with a museum/visitor center in between with an overlook to view the wide open grounds. It was a solemn-feeling experience there. We're glad we stopped.
