Setting - beautiful high mountain slopes fringed by aspen groves many miles from civilization
The Year - 1940, many thousands of miles and a world away from the turmoil in Europe.
Although there were many older as well as more recent dates in this grove,
this one caught my eye. It made me think about how this person probably had
no idea that the world was about to change forever. I wonder
what became of him? Oddly, as if time stopped, I observed no dates in the grove
carved between 1941 and 1945.
