1. In Memory of David Erickson Marker
Inscription. A U.S. Forest Service crew leader from Siskiyou County, Calif. lost his life while fighting the Stanislaus Complex Fire which destroyed 147,000 acres. For the love of the forest he gave the ultimate sacrifice September 11, 1987.

Sit and rest awhile listen to the pines whisper in the light wind gaze at the trees and look upward where branches reach the sky where clouds pass by and day turns to night where memories are everlasting.
