Your bound to find something good if your travel country roads
Thursday as my mom and I were
getting lost exploring and traveling to Altura Mn to get our flowers, we came across this amazing cemetery near Elba, Mn...
A small cemetery with several gated plots
Most of the stones were unreadable, which always makes me kind of sad
even more sad to me is that none of the small gated plots had been cared for,
dandelions and long grass invaded the area between the stones.
The iron fences surrounding each plot were speckled with rust, in need of some fresh paint.
A few headstones stood alone under this big tree
I often stand in these small cemeteries and wonder about those who have passed. Did the ones here, farm in this community near Elba, MN... Were they wealthy? The gated plots make it seem so, but then again I don't really know, (I have just never seen that before). Do they have family that still care enough to visit.... I know I would, if they were my family, and I would have those plots looking immaculate. This cemetery doesn't even have a name. I tried looking it up, but found nothing.
I was glad to come across this quaint little graveyard. I may have to make a second visit, I would love to learn more about this one!
