A Fun Trip With My Husband

Over the weekend my husband and I went on an adventure! we were planning to go to Saguaro Monument to take pictures, but they don't open until 7 am. Since it was before 6 we just followed the road to see if there was any place else.
We found this wonderful mini cemetery about a mile before the gates to Colossal Cave. The cave was also closed.
I present Rincon Cemetery, one of the oldest in town and started on the heels of a gunfight!

The entry gate.

It's all locked up, we had to go around the wall.

Beautiful iron work.

Some of the graves are so old they don't have markers anymore; if they ever did. The last pic is my favorite one. It was a really nice spot and a lot of the graves are arranged to look out over the valley. You have to go off the path to read the names and it's a bit steep. 
All in all it was a great find and afterwards we went to Denny's!


  1. I love the old cemeteries. Often such beautiful places. Sad to see how many families died very, very young though...

  2. Nice images! What an amazing place to visit and take photos!

  3. What an amazing place! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks! I hope to go back there soon!
