There are monuments everywhere. Over the course of history there have been many heroes and events which should be remembered for eternity, and it is often fitting to commemorate these important people or occasions with a monument. Some are not called “monuments” but some similar term may be used. This series is reserved for those memorials which are commonly (and/or officially) called “monuments.”
Some monuments are natural:
Monument Valley, Arizona, USA — Classic Western landscape of buttes and mesas make up this incredible place.
Independence Monument, Colorado National Monument, USA — One of the most popular formations in this interesting place is a tall column of stone.
While some are man-made:
Cabrillo Monument, San Diego, California, USA — This statue overlooking the city of San Diego is dedicated to Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo who sailed into San Diego harbor in 1542.
