King-Spiller Butte Relic Site, part 1

North 7th Street turns into Airport Road, and some 200 feet after beginning the ascent on Airport Road is an outdoor learning center.

An inukshuk is a man-made stone structure, "something which acts for or performs the function of a person" (see Wikipedia for more details).

This is Calvin L. King's memorial to his deceased wife, Judith.

"Calvin King was a biologist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. He was inducted into the Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame with the 2004 inaugural class." (quoted from this website)

The trail through the western half of the learning center ends here:
