memorial day weekend @ dardenne cemetery

On Saturday, my dad and I stumbled through the weeds and thorns in search of Dardenne Cemetery.
I'm not exactly sure why we went, honestly, except that sometimes it's fun just to get out and explore -- in Utah, South America, or your own backyard... What's most interesting and intriguing about this cemetery is its age and its remote location just west of the lakes in August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area (aka Busch Wildlife). I don't know much about the cemetery, but Kent goes into it a little more on his photo blog.
This is one of my favorites from the adventure... I love how time has aged the ground and grave markers -- how the family headstones lean in toward each other.
I'm posting a few more of my other photos from Saturday on my facebook profile. Y'know. If you're interested.
About the photo: f/2.8, 1/20, 100mm.
