Sadly, the memorial was removed (I assume by the Park Service) this summer. The rock was sandblasted and all the trinkets collected. While technically it could have been considered grafitti and trash, in my mind it was there long enough to become a piece of historical interest. It appears that there has been some attempt to re-establish it recently; time will tell what the powers that be see fit to do.
