Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

A Path at Mount Auburn Cemetery

Of all the cemeteries I’ve visited, Massachusetts’ Mount Auburn Cemetery has the most remarkable paths.  The cemetery is so big that it doesn’t have roadways capable of reaching all its graves.  Some graves actually lie along paths.  The paths are so official that they even have street signs.

As I explored Mount Auburn, I discovered a crowd of people gathered beneath a tree on Catalpa Path.  The telephoto showed me what had drawn them together…

I’ve seen some amazing things in graveyards, but this stoic bird is one of my favorites.
