Wandering the back roads around Congress, AZ we found this pioneer cemetery. Most of the graves did not have any headstones but the few that did show that these people died in the late 1800's or the very early 1900's.

The graves are outlined in quartz and many of them are quite small which suggests that children were lost during these hard years.

It's hard for me to imagine the life these pioneering people led. I think it's hard when I have to live in my rv without benefit of electrical hookups.
