This is the pond near the chapel. Lake View Cemetery started out as an arboretum and has many different tree specimens on it's 200+ acres. We walked 3 hours worth.
This is one of the many beautifully detailed mausoleums we looked at. The cemetery's statuary is really wonderful.
This is John D Rockefeller's final resting place. His monument is the largest piece of marble cut from a quarry in Vermont and rises 65 feet into the air.
This is one of the reliefs that surround the top of James A Garfield's monument and final resting place.
This is the west side of Garfield's memorial. Below is the north side and front entrance.
Here's the Cleveland skyline and Lake Erie from the balcony area, outside at the base of the dome. The dome is not open to the public. Beneath that is the view looking down into the cemetery's west side.
After our cemetery walk, we headed back towards home and stopped at one of our favorite Lake Metroparks, North Chagrin Reservation. Here are some of the photos I took there.

Yes - I'm a happy camper! It's autumn and all is right in my world. It looks like I've been doing nothing but goofing off and enjoying autumn, but there has been LOTS of art created in between. I'll get to that tomorrow, but first....

The Hazmat Team has some serious Halloween business to attend to! There are airborne pathogens to search for.
