A Beautiful Place

Today we went for a walk in one of my favorite places to walk (yes, I have several favorite places).

Mt. Hope Cemetery

The reason this is one of my favs is this is one of the only places where there is evidence of glacial activity that I know of in the city, thus there are lots of hills in this relatively flat county.

And an esker named Indian Trail because Native Americans used to travel along this esker from the Bristol Hills to Lake Ontario.

And there are several famous people buried here, including Frederick Douglass and his wives

And there’s tons of beautiful, different types of trees, shrubs and trails.

These were all sights for sore eyes, so to speak. And very refreshing. I hope it was for you, too, to look through my photos.

    I’ll probably never get to Mount Hope at this time of year. Thanks for sharing the beauty.

    Mount Hope cemetery is very beautiful. It looks so much like our Erie Cemetery. We love walking there. The gorgeous trees and the lawns are so pretty and we find the gravestone inscriptions interesting and some of the mausoleums have beautiful stained-glass windows. It is really a walk through history.

    Lynne – I wish you could have, too. There’s always tons of hawks there, too.

    Apple – you’re welcome!

    Jayne – it is.

    Linda – That’s what I love, too.

    How very interesting. The cemetery is beautiful. I love blogs like yours, they allow me to share in what I would not be able to see otherwise. We don’t have trees that turn beautiful colors in the fall. It’s also really interesting to see your photos of the important people buried there.

    I’ve always liked walking in cemeteries. They remind me that time is short and sometimes give me little insights into how people spend their lives.
