Well, after our awesome vacation to Rochester, NY, for Leonardo's baptism and the Fourth of July, the rest of July was extremely busy. Work picked up for me such that it was quite stressful. Plus, I overbooked myself during my evenings, so I couldn't even get a bit of a rest. I had a lot of hockey games, plus pilates class, a scrapbooking expo, and we went to see two plays.
Plus, we attended one concert: Florence and the Machine, at Red Rocks! It was the perfect evening, it didn't thunderstorm on us like it tends to do these days in the 100+ degrees. Florence was AMAZING, and even she got overwhelmed by how AWESOME Red Rocks is! The show was too short, but other than that, the songs were simply amazing to hear in that atmosphere.
So, while July was a very busy month, I don't have any photos to show for it. Instead, this month I will show you some of the photos that I took with my amazing new phone (Samsung Galaxy Note) at the Erie Cemetery, which is quite old yet sparse and very serene with the backdrop of the Rockies.
This was an enclosed area inside of the cemetery, not sure why as there was nothing in it. Perhaps the gravestones have all been eroded and removed.
Only the top remains of this tombstone, which looks like it has some sort of crop or flower on it.
This marker is for two children who died in the late 1800's. I think the scuplture on the top is a lamb missing its head.
This one is just as sad--no one ever finished the marker with the deceased year.
A cluster of old graves.
A rather rustic and macabre fence around a very eroded stone, kinda sad really.
This is not a real tree, the whole tree is the tombstone. Henry lived to age 74 back in the 1800's, that's impressive!
Sorry to be so depressing, next month will have some more vacation photos!!
