Tombstone Tuesday: A Southwestern Cemetery

We took a drive around El Paso the other day, exploring the city a bit and trying to get our bearings.  As we were rocketing by on I-10, I spotted this cemetery and had to take some pictures.  Definitely not where I’d want my loved ones buried – right on the interstate AND so dry and barren.  It’s not very picturesque, is it?

    It’s odd, I’ll give you that. What’s curious is the contrast with the lush green cemetery next to it … it’s almost like it’s purposely dry, brown, and barren. Nice photos!ReplyCancel

    Wow! Did you get the name of the cemeteries? There has got to be a reason for the difference between the two…ReplyCancel

      I didn’t, but I will have to get an El Paso map and see if I can figure out which cemetery it is. I agree – it is so strange that there is a walled in area with grass and trees and then the rest is just barren dirt. I am curious to know why also. :)ReplyCancel

    Maybe the grassy area was for the “rich” folks?ReplyCancel

    I found out that the grassy area is the Jewish section.ReplyCancel
