Exploring Local Graves

One of the best things about moving to a new area is being able to experience everything for the first time. You are constantly discovering new areas to explore, fun restaurants, beautiful scenery, and of course: graveyards. Yes, we love exploring cemeteries. It may be because our last name is Graves, but really I think it is more so due to the architecture and history of cemeteries that draws us to visit them. 
The Mountain View Cemetery has so many incredible mausoleums and great historical gems.  There is a strip of mausoleums called "Millionaires Row" that has some of the biggest and intricate structures in the humungous cemetery. The 226 acre cemetery is too much to visit in one Sunday afternoon stroll, and we are excited to go back and visit during another season. During Christmas, there are decorations that are a fun twist on traditional Christmas lights, so maybe we'll have another adventure then.
