A Kentucky Cemetery Walk

On Friday I spent the afternoon with an uncle walking a cemetery in Boyd County, Kentucky. We walked about 85 % of a large cemetery before finally finding the group of graves we were looking for. It was well worth the trek, although I advise not to wear sandals when walking through unmowed grass on the hills of Kentucky. (I know of two people bitten by copperheads recently.) But the trip to the cemetery was an impromptu one, and sandals were what I was wearing. Fortunately the weather was 25° cooler than the 105° temperature the last cemetery walk I took.
