Country Living/ Dying

In the old days country folk were buried near where they lived.   On one of our Miata early evening outings we came upon this old cemetery atop  Brinkman's Ridge not far from us.

There were only about 20 headstones on the small corner plot overlooking the ridge. The surnames were Germanic in origin : Schulz, Krause and Dahl. It was common that similar ethnic groups would settle near each other.   The oldest dates were impossible to decipher but the most recent was in the 1970's.

The view is to die for/ as my Dad always says ' People are just dying to get in." And with this view who could blame them?

                We are really certainly enjoying the gorgeous weather while it lasts!
