Tombstone of Captain Thomas Smith

Ashland is apparently a smoky mess these days. I’ll be back in town in a couple weeks. Hopefully the skies will clear up soon. Today’s photo is from a foggy morning rather than a recent smoky day.

This headstone is rather interesting. It seems like the writing wasn’t completely planned, and the engraver added some words in after the fact. If you can’t read the words, try clicking on the image while on a larger screen.

Capt. Thos. Smith was born on the 14th of September in 1809 in Campbell, Kentucky and died on the 4th of November in 1892 in Ashland, Oregon. According to this site he did more than hold the savages at bay. He also started the Bank of Ashland.

Ashland Cemetery in Autumn

The fall season and cemeteries seem to go hand in hand. Neither looks quite right without the other.

Mountain View Cemetery in autumn

If you were buried in Mountain View Cemetery, and you could look out the side of your coffin, this is the last glimpse you would take in as you were lowered into the ground during the first couple weeks of November. Or perhaps this would be the first thing you saw after becoming a zombie. Do zombies rise in the middle of a beautiful, fall day like today when I took this photo? Probably not.

Sunday morning I went to a few locations in the morning to take some photos while the sun was still low in the sky. The Ashland Cemetery is such a lovely place, especially this time of year.

Same tree, different season

I probably should have waited another week or two to take this one as the leaves are just beginning to appear. In a few weeks this tree will be really green. Oh well. Here is what it looked like last fall.

Even the cemeteries are screaming new life at this time of year.

Fall is gone but not forgotten. Today’s photo features a look back to Ashland Cemetery in October.
