Highland Cemetery


As a kid I used to play in this huge cemetery. Most of it is secluded  along rolling hills and ending at woods. The woods were huge and we lived on the other side.

Exploring the woods one day we walked out into this cemetery and it became a place where we visited when we were particularly adventurous. There are graves here from the early 1800’s up to current markers. Some of my childhood friends are here.

Today I went there, as I often do, to pay my respects and think. If you go to the back there are secluded spots to walk around and look out unto the woods which drop down to a valley. You can even see the water tower in the distance.
