Obvious these friends were so loved by their owners. We spent about 45 minutes reading headstones and monuments. Certainly worth a stop if in the area. about 20 minutes from Rattlesnake Saloon. The parking is gravel.

Far above our expectations! It was interesting to see the love and devotion of the coon dog owners in keeping the cemetery neat and decorated. First time we saw pennies on tombstones. Had to google the meaning.
