Jimi’s Grave

We were heading towards SeaTac to drop a friend off at the airport.  We were coming in through Renton on a back road and had some time to spare so I made a quick diversion to a local cemetery.  This is the final resting place of Jimi Hendrix.  I had been meaning to check this out for a while and this was the first good opportunity.

It is a nicely laid out shrine to Jimi.  Some graphics of him are engraved in the stone of the structure and there is a guitar sculpture at its center.  A bunch of different picks are inserted in the sculpture by visiting fans.  Flowers are growing around the base of the shrine.  I imagine that there are plenty of visitors throughout the year although we were the only ones on this Friday afternoon.
