He's Dead, Jim

He's Dead, Jim
South-east of Keeler, CA, a few hundred yards off the road, lays a forgotten graveyard. Many of the gravesites have melted away into the desert soil, much like the occupants, I presume. A few, though, have withstood the desert summers and still speak to those of us yet living.

When it's my time, I hope my gravesite looks something like this.

When my time comes.. it is the the four winds for me...

I find this kind of grave (and there are so many "pioneer" cemeteries in the US...) so evocative.

My friend John who you have heard me speak of as the hiker with the doggie.. he is an avid Geocacher !

I followed the link to the cache page - unfortunately it's 5194.3 miles North-West of me so I don't think I'll be visiting anytime soon.
