I have family up in the high desert of Arizona. They are a quirky bunch who have settled into a cute little nest in a town called Cherry, Arizona. This was a mining town long ago. Nowadays, it's a dirt path off the highway that no one knows about, don't know the town, don't know it exists. That's the way they like it there. The people who live there are everything from crusty old desert dudes to survivalist-types to retiring families and folks who just simply want to get away from it all. I did a little short clip of the trip to Cherry and the cemetery there. It's an adorable little one with a lot of graves for pets and some older ones from back when the town was an active mining place and some graves simply named "baby" for folks whose newborns didn't make it. I thought you'd enjoy a new cemetery to look at and some extremely dry Arizona countryside...
