West Point Cemetery : West Point Cemetery is a small Oregon pioneer cemetery just north of the town of Coburg.  Its inhabitants include some of the founding families of Coburg, as well as some relatives of Joaquin Miller, a well-known writer who was a contemporary of Mark Twain and grew up in this area.  It is a typically peaceful small country cemetery, idyllic even though it is barely a stone's throw from Interstate 5.  I visited the cemetery on August 12, 2009, with my friend Jo-Anne who used to live in Coburg and knows a lot about the history of the area.  The pictures were taken with my little point-and-shoot Canon.

Cemeteries : I have a curiosity about cemeteries, the stones and symbols of the decorations, and the stories told. The older stones have ornateness that more recent ones do not and I love to capture these.  I have tried to include meanings for the symbols chosen for the various stones as well show the stories told on the stones.
