Concordia Cemetery - El Paso, TX
Pictures from www.somethingaweful.comEl Paso, TX is in what one might normally describe as a desert, but we've been having some freakishly strong monsoons this year. I'm talking receiving double our normal annual rainfall in about a month and a half. That's roughly 15" of rain in 6 weeks in a city that has no concept of proper drainage. This has lead to water pooling everywhere, tons of mosquitos, and jungles of weeds. That's what brings me here today.
Just a few more shots of graves hidden in the weeds.
At this point in time my girlfriend and I got tired of taking pictures of weeds and decided to see if there were any interesting headstones.
This is the section they have cleared out so far, with a shot of the lovely Franklin Mountains in the background.
This seems to be a very popular name for some reason.
We saw no sign of the Zombie Bradford, unfortunately.
A slightly headstone.
More stones in disrepair.
Well, this looks like a cute little group of graves.
Some stones that caught my eye.
These were all in a row. Not sure why the last one has a different last name.
Obviously, Masons were abound.
The lovely Mason memorial on the way out.
