We practiced crevasse rescue at neighboring Volunteer Park with my basic mountaineering class (which must have looked a whole lot like LARPing to onlookers). One one trip I noticed googlemaps informed me that this was the site of Bruce and Brandon Lee’s graves.

I stopped on my way to class in honor of my brother, who was a colossal fan of “The Crow” when it came out and obsessed with the tragic deaths of Bruce and Brandon.

For what it is worth, the mortuary where Bruce Lee’s funeral was held is now a high-end craft beer bar. Fantastic selection. There is a picture of the funeral on the wall; Clint Eastwood was a pallbearer.
