Nothin' quite like a good, rural graveyard...
Sometimes on a long motorcycle ride or drive in the car, a pleasant, quiet break is in order. What about that rural cemetery over there adjacent to the road. You know: the one you probably would pass right by? So much history. So many stories. Maybe that's why they call 'em plots. :)

Old Military Cemeteries Can be Interesting
An early date with my now wife included a walk through the [URL="http://www.vbma.us/projectsCemetery.html"]post cemetery[/URL] at Vancouver Barracks. As a former Army bandsman, she was excited to come across the headstone for the last bandsman to receive the MoH, for action during the Spanish-American War. There were also several bandsmen/buglers with dates of death occurring during the retreat of the Nez Perce. The Nez Perce understood interrupting the lines of communication.
On the outskirts of the town where we now live sits an old soldiers home. We've been past the cemetery a few times but have yet to go inside the gate. Something to do when the weather gets nicer. The headstones near the road look pretty old.
Next to HWY 12 outside of Kamiah is the First Indian Presbyterian church Cemetery. Stopped for a break on the back end of Lolo Pass. Glad i did.
