ghost towns graveyards and beds ....

Virginia city .... where Bonanza was filmed ...where it used to take an hour to cross the single main street ... where thousands and thousands of goldminers and silver miners swarmed .....
where men still wear spurs and sheriffs badges and the sidewalks are wooden slats slumping now like an Alice in wonderland rollercoaster....

where the graveyard looks like a giant has been throwing around old

....beds .....

So interesting! With Easter approaching, I really can't help thinking about the Greek word 'cemetery', which of course means graveyard, but it actually refers to the place where people are not really dead, but only sleeping.

Oh that is different! Beautiful, though, I've never seen anything like it. And what a nice concept, to put your dead to sleep..

wow, weirdness :S
Also weird that they used wood instead of stone and they indeed look like beds which is also weird LOL
