Mount Moriah Cemetery

Mount MoriahWith over 6,000 cemeteries scattered throughout Minnesota, it’s easy to understand why some of them would end up on the #mnbucketlist. I happened upon this one, Mount Moriah Cemetery, while driving down a back road near Jordan. Perched on top of a hill, the beautiful little family plot was backlit by what would end up being an unbelievable sunset. It shares its namesake with two other more well knowns’, one in South Dakota where Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried in Deadwood. The other in Philadelphia, filled with lots of notables and civil war soldiers. This one, a little less prestigious but just as sweet, is off the beaten path, just down the road from the Minnesota Harvest apple farm.
