In search for interesting cemeteries for my ghost series of paintings, I found a fantastic one, right near home. The Santa Clara Memorial Park. It's even dog friendly! My mom's dog, Star, found a friend there (Star is the white dog). Interesting monuments and trees, including redwoods and pepper trees. We got there late so we only had time for a short visit but I'll be back soon.

Really interesting. My hubby likes photography. Ones he found a very, very, very old cemetery and wanted to photograph.

I wonder how old this cemetery is, cause they sure don't make 'em like this anymore!

Thanks for sharing! It does have some really cool looking trees and monuments.

On the website (which I found later), it said the oldest grave was 1864. I saw one that was dated 1880.
