Katie, apparently I have to fear for my life to write well, and Gary has to be complaining. Sounds like you're going to a blast in Oregon because both Gary and I want to chronicle it. :evil:

Mark dangled from the precipice as Gary stood, arms crossed. He smirked, "Your struggle will soon be over, Mr Totem. Now tell me the location of the rebel base!"

I spent most of the day walking around cemeteries. I took so many pictures that I really couldn't edit/crop/resize them all in a reasonable amount of time, so here's the whole batch.

There are 3 in particular which I really thought stood out. See if you can guess which they are.

Looks like you went for a walk in the woods and stumbled upon an old, forgotten cemetery. Spooky!

WOW!!!

I vote for 65 and 83.

There are only two other cemeteries that would rival that one in very different ways and scale. But neither have the size nor the neglect which make this one spectacular. As a lover of cemeteries and their mystique I would have to spend days in that one.

In comparison to Bonaventure how does the size compare?

I did a terrible job of explaining. The first cemetery, the one that's all old and overgrown... That's what's left of the only remaining Jewish Cemetery after the Nazis destroyed nearly everything.

Awesome, thanks G for clearing it up. I just assumed it was an old cemetery and breezed right through it. The Holocaust stuff just fascinates me.
My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dogs think I am.

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.

How does it feel to feel?
