Fort Duchesne Cemetary
Check out this rad cemetery I spotted on the way to Vernal, Utah.
The Fort Duchesne Cemetery:
I love visiting cemeteries.
They are fascinating.
I don't go for all the spooky, creepy reasons that draws a lot of people.
I like to see how different cultures commemorate their loved ones.
I think you can tell a lot about a community by checking out how they treat the dead.
For me, it's a peaceful place to contemplate mortality.
See!?!?! I'm not a disgusting, foul-mouthed blogger all the time! Occasionally my mind thinks semi-smart, normal things. I have feelings too, you guys.
For some reason, Ryan loves them to.
Probably because he gets to get out of the car and walk around.
This cemetery was almost as interesting as the one I saw in Hawaii last December.
Every grave plot had a mound of dirt rising over the ground.
Some had handwritten gravestones.
It seemed kind of like a carefully done DIY job.
Each grave had been carefully decorated and personalized.
It was freaking awesome.
There were seemingly random things placed on top of them.
Like this full Pepsi bottle.
I'm assuming this person liked Pepsi a lot.
And look at this gangsta hat with the word DOPE printed on the front.
The DOPE hat is even better when you realize there is a stone snail figurine to the right of it.
A gangsta that had an affinity for snails... I feel like this person and I are kindred spirits.
