Portland Arch Cemetery in Fountain, Indiana

little Indiana and family enjoyed tromping through this old Indiana cemetery. It was so spacious and very, very old. I could tell that even without seeing the massive tree trunk with many, many rings when we first walked in.

But the neatest part about this one for photography purposes were the unique arrangements of the headstones! So many were propped up against trees–and each other!

In fact, we even found a few headstones in a prickly briar patch. Now that’s unusual. It may not be what the original folks intended but it looked interesting.
