Concordia Cemetery Update





This weekend I had the opportunity to visit Concordia Cemetery in El Paso again. Not only were the cactus flowering, but I was able to snap a few pictures of a burrowing owl right after he'd caught some prey. Concordia is a fascinating place--you can see the graves of gunfighters, buffalo soldiers, early settlers, and Chinese workers who came to build the railroad--all in the shadow of the big city's interstate. For more information, photos, and a link to a map, check out our web page on the Concordia Cemetery.
