I had to climb over that rock formation to the right.
I’m not as agile as I used to be.

This was a two-mile hike after an early dinner. More to come… ~Vic

      I do, too. I wandered all over the old cemetery in town next to the Presbyterian Church. Revolutionary War headstones, Civil War headstones, a Declaration of Independence signer, state governors, state senators, well-to-do families…

      We have on old slave cemetery a block from my house.

        I like the ones tucked away from everyone. I found one in the hills near where I grew up when I was a teenager from the 1800s…it still had these twisted cables going in the ground…I guess it’s what they used to lower the casket.

          In town, here, you’re likely to find little cemeteries in between houses. There is one three blocks away. It has its own entrance and isn’t associated with the properties of either house.

          I am completely fascinated.

            I found a small one a few years ago called. I love looking at the names…thinking no one probably knows some of these people ever existed now…their life has come down to a epitaph. For some reason it doesn’t depress me like it should.

      It was. We have a lot of nature preserves around here. Most are along the Eno River and a large portion of them are attached to or supported by Duke University.
