WHO KNEW IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL?
Tahoma National Cemetery
I never really thought of this cemetery as being a destination. It was just there. I had no need to see it. But this morning I drove out to see The Fuchsia Lady to purchase 3 fuchsias to hang in front of our house. On the way I drove right past the cemetery and thought, hmmmm, it is a beautiful morning and I am a bit early for the nursery to open, so I drove on in. What a sight. It seems like it has only been around for about 10 years, but to my surprise it opened in 1997!
I found this on the Tahoma National Cemetery website:
|There were several different sections like this. Full of tombstones|
|This is where they have flag ceremonies|
|Look at Mt. Rainier peeking through|
|Look at all those names...and on and on it goes|
