Mountain Wilderness Memorial was established in 1987 by owners Don and Barbara Blehm. The half-acre lot slopes down from the road and has a beautiful view of the north side of Pikes Peak. Lined paths wind among the markers and in the center is a small amphitheater for services. Landscaping includes aspen and evergreen trees, wildflowers, and natural grasses. Clients can select the area where they would like their bronze plaque.
