here are some pics of creepy crypts. hey, if they weren't creepy what would
be the point of 'em?
this is denver's riverside cemetery, est. 1890.
the evans one- this is just toooooo creepy- you can see through the grilled door down into the crypt. it goes a ways back, evidently someone was looking to have a group home. i think the bods have been re-interred.
jones- broken into several times, so bods also probably re-interred.
hollister- looks to be more secure, but who knows?
years back some kids dug up an army general and cut his head off. caught, prosecuted for grave robbing, desecration of a corpse, criminal trespass.
there're tours at night during halloween. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
group of white headstones is the pre-ww1 veteran's section, some marked 'soldier unknown'.

no idea what the hoss is about. something i heard about hoss statues: if a horse is rearing w/rider it means a battlefield victory, if merely walking/standing it means a battle lost. an unaccompanied hoss means dead rider. ???????
blue/white thing is a monument in the russian orthodox section. attached to it are three plaques commemorating individuals lost during 3 wars. the others don't have pictures. a pic actually forces you to recognise the loss of that person. i saw a lot of these in germany- whole cemetery boundary walls covered with pics of soldiers whose final resting place was not recorded. not just one war, either. many had 'gefallen in osten'- fallen in the east (russia).
