10/06/2019 - The cemetery is even more overgrown than some of the photos on the article might indicate. The brilliant yellow aspens were gorgeous. It was all but impossible to tell where the Knights of Pythias Cemetery ended and the city cemetery began. It is also difficult to tell whether some collections of materials are informal graves, pranksters trying to contribute to the creep factor, or something else. Informal paths are spiderwebbed through the trees. We spent about an hour wandering here and in the cemeteries across the road. A good number of other visitors were also present; though it was not crowded, we were not alone.
