The Unknown Dead Gravesite

Leave a comment

Wherever we travel we visit the cemeteries. It gives a lot of Insight about a culture. Japan sets drinks on their grave sites, Jamaica has brightly painted above ground grave boxes and France has gorgeous sculptures.
With over 2000 dead from the Johnstown flood and many Unidentified bodies, the unknown memorial high on the hill above Johnstown was our next destination.

When we were here long ago, the kids all laid down at the little tombstones and pretended to be dead. So they reenacted their childhood.
