Nestled close to the Sacramento Mountains in Alamogordo, is the Monte Vista Cemetery and also the final resting place for my Dad, Sam Pilgreen.
This cemetery is hauntingly beautiful in that it's a very, very old cemetery. There is an older section to this final resting ground secluded from "general population" where the gravestones date back to the early 1800's late 1700's. I could not find an exact date this cemetary was established, but a quick run to the local library today should do the trick.
Some gravestones in the eerie older section of this cemetery have no markings, just lonely small gravestones from years ago. Weathered from age, story-less, and alone. I find this truly disturbing. Luckily the cemetery is kept clear of debris and trash. It's a true step back in time when gazing upon this section of the cemetery.
