What's the big deal? If the owners want to put up a tribute and you don't like it, ignore it. I don't know about all other members, but a cross, plaque or perennial at some place along a trail would not ruin my outing. I am a dog-lover, though I don't take my dogs hiking, I can see a want to put some sort of a memorial and as long as it doesn't get in your way while hiking, why do you even care if someone were to put up a remembrance that has no affect on you?
