1/4/2014: Mountain View Cemetery Sunset, Sharpsburg, Maryland.
On the way out of Antietam National Battlefield I wanted to stop at the Antietam National Cemetery. Across the street I found another historic graveyard, Mountain View Cemetery. The date on the gate says 1883, though I think some of it may predate that. It is rather large, with large old spruce trees, and many very old grave markers. This shot is on the hill in the northeast cotter looking back weat / southwest to the other hill. As you can see it is a larger celerity. Ill be posting more pics of this cemetery in the future as I took several. It was especially beautiful under a blanket of snow in the setting sun. It is located in historic Sharpsburg, in Washington county, Maryland.
