We woke up this morning and started our morning ritual of coffee and internet surfing.  Imagine our suprise when our e-mail account contained notification of a new opencache only 3 miles away from our place.  And that's country miles, so in city terms that might as well be 2 blocks.  Read up on what we needed to do in order to log a bit cache and then Mrs. Inkwell sent me on my way.

We've driven past this place many times over the years and yes, the view is something special here.  Once I pulled into the cemetery, I made the short walk to find the tag.  We will never talk smack about your antiquated GPS unit, as when we were standing with tag in hand, our GPS read 4'.  I do have a picture to prove it, but unfortunately, the SD card in our new camera isn't compatable with this laptop.  Weird. 

So after recording the password, I took a stroll around this marvelous cemetery, snapping photos like a madman.  I would venture a guess that this is the largest collection of 1850's grave stones in all of Niagara County.  It's really quite amazing.  The artwork on some of them has stood the test of time and is really quite impressive. I noticed a lot of familiar Cambria family names throughout this place.  Kroening, Hill and McCollum to name a few.

Thanks for placing this cache!  This whole bit caching thing is pretty cool.
