On our way to the cabin, about 15 minutes from our place,
we pass by a sign that reads "Evergreen Cemetery" , well....
those of you that know me, KNOW that I am lured to cemeteries!
Any cemetery but ESPECIALLY the small country cemeteries.
On this particular trip to the cabin we FINALLY stopped to check it out,
I'm glad we did because I have never seem a cemetery quite like this one....
First... the sign.
Looks like someones family member put this together with old scraps of wood from the garage.
then the one-lane dirt path that seems to go to nowhere.
Then the plots.... very unique markers
(I blotted out the last names out of respect to those deceased)
A steel hand made yellow cross, with names of family member, (perhaps children),
hand-penned down the middle.
Silk flowers adorn the grave markers,
this cemetery so remote yet those who rest here still thought of.
I thought this interesting, the grave site bordered by cement paver's.
Again a hand made cross, no big grave stone marker here.
This little gem caught my eye, a small angel attached to a nearby fence.
So unique, cement boots sit atop this grave, marked with a hand made cross.
Look closely at the cross....a belt
A little hard to see, but there sites are all outlined by small rocks
No name, just a site bordered by wood pieces
This little Digger toy looks to be deliberately left here in this small plastic circle,
there doesn't appear to be a grave nearby so I'm not sure what to think of this???
A wooden marker, names and dates inscribed with a wood burning tool.
Along side it another hand made cross.
This marker simply states "AT REST"
I want to know more about this cemetery, it's just so unique,
never seen anything quite like it.
No, we are not in South Dakota
There is a Buffalo farm on the way to our cabin, this time we stopped for a photo op.
As I got closer I started hearing some crazy snorting so it was a brief visit.....those creatures are huge.
