Pointe du Hoc Monument

After the Normandy Military Cemetary, we then traveled 8 miles west to the Pointe Du Hoc Monument. This monument honors the rangers who scaled the cliffs using metal hooks to disable German guns that were shooting out over Omaha and Utah beaches.

You can still see the craters in the ground from the massive bombing that occured by the Americans prior to the rangers scaling the cliffs. The remains of the German bunkers can be explored here as well.
