The other thing we like to do on mini trips out is to visit pioneer cemeteries.
The history and stories create all kinds of questions for me.
Family’s laid to rest placed alongside each other by age.
Perhaps babies or young children died because of the kind of illnesses they faced and the lack of care they would receive.
The aged old stories of wagon trains and walking by foot on trails so dense with foliage. I am not sure how they would forge through the rough terrain.
To capture the history of these old sacred places is both fascinating and thought provoking.
Times are so different now.
May we learn to slow down and notice …
the stories we miss all around us if we would just look and pay attention.
