“Such Solitude Tucked Away In Renton”

It was so peaceful. Not an elaborate cemetery. We were the only people visiting Jimi's grave that late afternoon and it brought a solitude that washed the soul. A few guitar picks had been left for the great Jimi Hendrix, other than that, just the walls with various lyrics and drawings of Jimi. We sat for a while, reading and relaxing and took in the calm, peacefulness that was the legendary guitar great's final resting place. Driving back to Seattle I was glad we had gone. I still treasure that moment of our trip. If you head that way please stop by. You won't be disappointed.

We decided to stop by Jimi Hendirx's memorial since we had a car and some time. It was pretty cool. It is in an Asian gardens and his memorial is right in the front when you pull in. We were the only ones there until another father and son pulled up. My favorite part was that there were crayons there so I was able to do a stone rubbing of his tomb. It is free and if you are a fan I highly recommend it.

This is a very tasteful and moving monument to, arguably, the greatest rock guitarist ever. The monument is engraved with Jimi's likeness and lyrics. This is certainly a must see for Jimi fans Only about 15-20 minutes from Seattle.

We stopped here on a recent trip to the Seattle area. The cemetery is well kept and the Jimi Hendrix Memorial is easy to find because of its' size. Plenty of room to park and walk up. Just something we always wanted to do because we are Jimi Hendrix fans.

Spent many afternoons sitting in this cemetery... Just communicating with the people, living and passed. Very spiritual place. Very spiritual calm and serene.
