It wasn't a long ride. Just down the street to a local park and around its trails. I probably could have gone a couple miles further if I paced myself but I didn't want to overexert myself after months off the bike.
On the way, I came across this...
|Sculpture in Veteran's Park, Richfield, MN|
I've been going to this park for years but I didn't notice the sculpture until a few weeks ago when I was going past in a car. Unfortunately, I forgot to look for a plaque so I don't know the name or who the artist was. To the camera's left, there was a three-panel wall inscribed with the names of soldiers and their branches. But, I have no clue if they were deceased or what wars they fought in or anything about it, really. It is right next to a VFW building. Maybe they were somehow connected to that VFW.
