Kennedy Memorial

Kennedy Memorial Posted by Hello
The JFK Memorial is known as Yad Kennedy here in Israel. It is reached by following winding roads about seven miles from downtown Jerusalem. It was opened in May of 1966 and is designed in the shape of a cut tree trunk, symbolizing a life cut short. The mountaintop memorial is encircled by 51 columns representing each state of the United States plus DC. As these photos show, it has a spectacular view. We passed many bikers on our way up and down today. I was shocked to see so many people on what seems to me to be a very challenging road for biking.
