Mount Hope Cemetery

Here are a couple of photographs from Mount Hope Cemetery, in Rochester, NY.  It is an astounding landscape and an absolutely beautiful place.  It was founded in 1838, and consists of 196 acres, and is the permanent resting place of over 350,000 people.  There are hills and valleys everywhere.  The land here was once covered with one or two miles of ice and when the ice melted, the water carved the landscape and left deposits of soil.  I worked in Rochester for two years, and I cannot believe I have never been here before!
