. . . we decided to build our monument to Robert Frost and the people who choose to go down the roads less traveled. Rather than bringing a monument to Main St, we thought it'd be interesting to build something on the arboretum's naturally beautiful trail because we believe that people who spend all their time time on main roads and in buildings could benefit from exploring their surroundings more. A monument in a less-accessible location not only honors the people who take the time to visit the location, but it could ideally inspire people to venture up into the woods for the first time.
Last class we began building the arch in the picture after Liz's location suggestion and we really enjoyed it, finding cool things like the skunk cabbage shown in one of the pictures. Meanwhile we thought to dedicate it to Frost , realizing how sad it was that a lot of people just "don't have the time" or motivation to visit spots like this.
