Gothic Graveyard Near Skookumchuck

graveyard, originally uploaded by seawallrunner.

This beautiful small cemetary, with its own gothic arch and carved wooden headboards rendered in a wonderful folk art manner, is found about 8km away from Skookumchuck.

It features very old gravestones built from early to mid-20th century.

Skookumchuck has its own cemetary - which leads me to wonder, why a separate one for a small group of people?

When we drove again past this graveyard an hour later (after a visit to Skookumchuck) we noticed that there were beautiful fresh flowers on some of the graves. Although this graveyard is isolated, it is still visited and protects the remains of people who are remembered and well loved.
