Elmwood In Autumn

                                        Elmwood Cemetery looking South from behind the chapel.  

        Elmwood Cemetery, first burial 1872, is located at Truman Road and Van Brunt Boulevard. 

Above, bronze doors on a mausoleum.  Glass shows reflections of the surroundings, except for upper  
                right  which is partly a reflection and partly the stained glass window that is inside. 
Top, the chapel.  Bottom and following, the saddest markers are those of the children who died in 
                        infancy.  All of these were placed at the turn of the last century.

Maple Cathedral

 Maple Grove, along the Indian Mound Trail, is unusually beautiful this year.  This is looking North from the Trail toward Gladstone Blvd.   

The "easiest" way to get to the Grove is go straight down the bluff from Hardest and Gladstone Blvd.  Not real difficult, just steep.  Above, what you see about 1/3 of the way down. 

Above and below you can see the Trail.  It's not difficult, you just need good footwear. 

Lay on your back to get the full effect.
