I was out taking photos of the lovely Monterey Coast. Met another photographer who told me about the JD plaque just a short distance away. I loved John Denver’s song and made the short trek and found the plaque. It brought back a lot of...More

Our family is a huge fan of John Denver - a little hard to find and the plaque could stand a good cleaning but a great memorial to one of the best!

This is a very simple plaque in honor of the spot where John Denver crashed into the ocean. It is NOT a must see when in Pacific Grove. We live here full time.
