The Jimi Hendrix Grave Site is a beautiful tribute to a talented musician. It's a must for any hardcore fans. It's located in Renton and is not too far from Seattle. It's in the Greenwood Memorial Park and is very easy to find.

Everytime I come here it's a little different. I've been here in the rain and on a beautiful sunny day. Usually no one else around. It's really a beautiful spot and quite a tribute to one of America's greats. Not far from downtown Seattle.

It is a nice memorial to Jimi. He used to be out about 50 feet from where my cousin was laid to rest after being killed in Vietnam. Well worth a visit and some photos for anyone who is a fan of Jimi Hendrix.

An amazing tribute to an amazing and incredibly talented man. He made music...the somewhat newer monument is very beautifully done. It may seem as though you can hear the music.. Plan to pick up some Ezells chicken and spend some time with an old friend.
