    Very nice thanks
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Where would this cemetary be in relation to the town of Patigonia? Have you been up the road to Harsaw?

    Thanks.
    A little less than 1/2 mile south from the edge of town there's a hard left up the hill, that's the cemetary road.

    Yes, I've been to Harshaw & enviorns many times. There's an outfit that still lives there in the house their GGG(?) Grand dad built in 1878. Wonderfull old Arizona pioneer stock, nice folks.

    Did you know there's 2 grave yards in Harshaw?

    The Patagonia mts is still a great area to explore, lots to see, theres a mine up in every canyon.

    Have you seen the Worlds Fair? It's in a beautiful spot.

    Cool pictures.



    For some macabre reason I'd rather be buried in a desolate abandoned cemetery than some high and mighty marble orchard in the city. Maybe it's because they always seem so peaceful.

    Great photos.

    Harshaw was one of the first sites I visited when I began ghost towning years ago.

    Washington Camp and Duquesne are nearby, but do I understand correctly that these are now closed off?

    Vulture, did you go down to Lochiel?

    You heard right Tom. Most of the buildings in Washington camp are modernized & occupied or posted.
    Duquesne is all private property now with the town itself fenced & posted. The roads up to the mines are gated. It's been selling off over the last few years in 35 acre lots so folks can build their McMansions.

    Same thing happed to the old Salero ranch.
