Cemetery Hill

“Here lies George Johnson, Hanged by mistake, 1882.
He was right, we was wrong, but we strung him up and now he’s gone.”

Mistakenly hung for horse thievery; buried at Boot Hill

Isn’t it odd that we care to know more about a soul when dead than when they are alive? I am a devoted explorer of pioneer cemeteries. I enjoy strolling about obscure cemeteries and seeing if I can draw out poignant images, dramas, tragedies and beauty too.

      I know, but there is much to be learned about journeys, struggles, hardships there. I always walk away with a sense of continuity, to endure, to not feel my burdens are that unique. It is a positive experience for the most part.
