The other day Glenda and I drove up to Cathedral Gorge State Park for an overnight camping trip. Our adventuring included Glenda giving me a delightful massage in a tent, snoozing in said tent with her two puppies, and freeing Glenda’s truck from a rut in a dirt road somewhere between Pioche and Sunnyside, Nevada. These sisters were doin’ it for themselves!
Our travels also led us to what amounted to ten different cemeteries. Some were on the agenda and others were unexpected treats. Here are a whole lot of (mostly) cemetery photos straight from the ol’ Canon Rebel T2i. Enjoy!
Cemetery #1, Alamo Cemetery
I’m not sure if these random wooden cross-shaped grave markers just down the road from Alamo Cemetery are related to the main cemetery, and I have no idea who’s buried here, but there were a few of them scattered throughout this area.
Cemetery #2, Richardville Cemetery, Alamo
Cemetery #3, Caliente City Cemetery
Cemetery #4, Conaway Memorial Veterans Cemetery, Caliente
Cemetery #5, Caliente IOOF (Odd Fellows) Cemetery
Cemetery #6, Bullionville Cemetery, Pioche
Cemetery #7, Pioche IOOF and Masonic Cemetery
Cemetery #8, Pioche Public Cemetery
Cemetery #9, Boot Hill Cemetery, Pioche
Cemetery #10, St. Laurence Catholic Cemetery, Pioche
I’d be remiss in my duties if I didn’t post a few random shots from the trip, including a handful from Cathedral Gorge.
Pioche definitely boasts some strange tourist trappings.
