About 100 yards after the entrance to Carleton’s Lower Arb from the top of the hill on Highway 19, there’s a sign on a path to the east that points visitors to the Marc von Trapp memorial. Click photos to enlarge. The plaque on the rock reads:
“The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” – Eden Phillpotts
This oak grove is dedicated to the spirit and memory of Marc von Trapp, class of 2000, who had an insatiable curiosity about the world. May this be a peaceful place to contemplate the universe and sharpen your wits.
Dedicated by Marc’s friends and family, June 2000
