Perfect location for an uplifting family memorial, including infants young children and of course adults, to eulogize and honor the passing of a close family member.

Spent a couple hours at Cathedral of the Pines for a total experience. Walked the path and took in the view, watched the informative video, went through the museum, and heard the bell tower chimes. Peaceful and beautiful.
