Winnemucca: Veterans Memorial

Winnemucca: Veterans Memorial

We’re still ascending the hill north out of Winnemucca.  We stop (not the first time) at the Veterans Memorial.2015-07-14q Winnemucca (13)

The equipment isn’t labeled, but Skus identified most of it.  The caisson  had to be WWI because of its wooden wheels, and it was horse drawn, quite a contrast with the jet plane behind it which could be from Korea, but probably Viet Nam!

As always, we’d appreciate comments or corrections!

This small collection also included a helicopter which I enjoyed because of the doves nesting in its underparts.   It’s a good spot for travelers to stretch their legs, next to the highway and not a long stop.
