Sunday started out great. The sun was shining, the wind was not blowing and traffic was light. This was my first trip using my Zumo 550. It wasn't really necessary because I grew up just outside of Sacramento in Rancho Cordova. In school, we had numerous field trips to the capitol grounds, but the memorial is fairly new. Parking was close and easy to find.

California Capitol Building
Capitol Park and the Veterans Memorial is around back. Roses abound.
The Memorial is circular with openings allowing access to the inside bronze figures.

Outside, the quarter circles have the names of the fallen.
