my friend sarah came home for the long weekend and since she is basically the only person i know who shares the same love of cemeteries that i do we decided to go to a few today. we really wanted to check out lake view cemetery in cleveland. lake view is to cleveland what greenlawn is to columbus. they are both huge, beautiful cemeteries. we LIVE in the cleveland area, but still neither of us had been to this cemetery. we made a day of it...

i think we hiked all around that cemetery...we got there at maybe 1:45 and stayed til 5 pm. here are the pictures...

^sarah took my picture in this grave marked simply 'augustus'. i think mr. augustus wanted people to come and appreciate his grave b/c there's a little bench inside!

^this memorial is near the front of the cemetery. it was erected to remember the teachers and children who lost their lives in the collinwood school fire. i don't know much about the fire except that it was in 1908...on the back lists all the names of the people who perished.

after going to lake view we decided to check out erie cemetery since it is close by. we found it and it was open. i took a bunch of pictures there, but after uploading and rotating about 90 some pictures already i am in no mood to do more, haha.
i'll post them later on though.

i wish i knew html or ANYTHING about webpages b/c i really want to make a cemetery site of my own.

ps. i took waaaaaaaaaaay more pictures at lake view than what is posted here. if you want to see more go here: lake view cemetery

also, when you're done looking at the lake view pictures, click on 'back to my photos' at the top and you'll see all the albums of every cemetery that i have been to thus far in my career of cemetery exploring!
