Know the story behind it?
Neat shot. I would love to find out the story behind it too. Nicely done.
I noticed the small stones placed on the top of the cross. I have been trying to find the history of that. Seems to be pretty common here as well. I was wondering if it was related to one specific religion or nationality.
I was walking back towards my car from a waterfall I discovered when wandering the mountains. I saw this grave, It is in the middle of nowhere no nearby cemetary or anything. I'm not sure about any story but the deceased was only 12 years old. I have seen this stones on the grave thing before as well but have no idea as to its signifigance.
I'd be incredibly surprised if one is allowed to (legally) bury a human being in the woods. Perhaps it's someone's beloved pet?
I found something similar, but it was a makeshift memorial to a person who had been hit by a train.
Im wondering maybe this person passed on near here. Maybe fell over a cliff or something.
I agree. Kinda strange, in such a remote area like that.
Nice capture, anyway. :thumbup: Would love to know the story behind that one!
I know its a Jews tradition, but this is cross? Google and fould this, seem to fit.
good find..... i think its more of a memorial too.... there are a few in my local area in a spot where someone has died, but not burried. So maybe this youngster came off a bike or something, and that was the spot were it happened.
Nice capture tho :thumbup:
nice googling jeff
Placing stones on graves like this is a Jewish traditon, but, others seem to be doing now as well. Go to any local Jewish Cemetery and almost all graves will have them. I mentioned this in a post in GRAVES...Rabbi Loew (of the Golam legend fame)..easy to spot by the small pebbles that are left huge pile!
It could be a site where ashes were scattered I guess.
