    High on a hilltop overlooking a nearby river valley is a trail I sometimes hike. On that trail is a memorial to a young high school student who died in an automobile accident several years ago. This must have been a favorite site of hers, because it is a rather steep climb to reach it, and somebody went to a fair bit of work for the memorial. Someone used to come by from time to time to keep it tidy, but judging from the Christmas decorations and the broken knick-knacks from falling branches, no one has been there lately, at least not since Christmas. I sometimes come here to meditate a bit. It is peaceful and evocative at the same time. We lost our oldest son a month before his 15th birthday, so the place always prompts a lot of memories.
