So I'm officially on vacation for the next week & a half!!
We don't really have a particular destination in mind, we're thinking to spend a couple days in Traverse City (the upper pinky finger region of the mitten) and then wandering south along Lake Michigan before coming back across the state home.
I discovered, thanks to FindAGrave.com, that there are a total of 33 REAL Maple Grove Cemeteries in Michigan !!! So hubby has agreed to add a couple of them into our travels. YAY!!
Leetsville, Kalkaska County (100 graves)
Empire, Leelanau County (619 graves)
Hudson, Leelanau County (3823 graves)
Keswick, Leelanau County (204 graves)
I can tell already this is going to be my favorite.
I love the gate & all the above-ground stones!
It looks like there are some older (1890s) stones in there,
but also very recent ones.
Grawn, Grand Traverse County (718 graves)
This is gonna be fun!
