Rest in peace

Eagan was founded in 1860 and Trinity Lone Oak Cemetery has existed since 1880. It was a quiet, grey, snowy walk through their cemetery.

  1. What would we the living do without such quiet cemeteries for our meditative walks.
    Those are nice words on the Nachtigalls' cross.

  7. Ah, the good old days where cemeteries were filled with statuary. I prefer the old style to contemporary stones that lie flat on the ground.

  8. I'm a cemetery tragic -- I don't want to be buried myself, but I love the history of the old cemeteries. I imagine your grey, snowy walk was quite eerie.
