The installation was created as a place to enjoy quiet and restful contemplation, with the shingles providing shelter from the elements, and inside there are benches to enjoy the view.

Inspired by the words and messages people etch into public places and trees, the cedar shingles display poetry, messages, initials and messages of love and memory from local schools,residents and other contributors to the project.
