Limbaugh cemetery

This lovely cemetery sits in a clearing surrounded by trees in the Mark Twain National Forest.  Driving on the narrow rock road up to the cemetery we wondered why anyone would choose such a place to bury their loved ones, but when we saw the cemetery we stood in awe at the beauty of the place.   Birds were everywhere and their songs filled the air in this peaceful setting.  Some kind person had placed a bench in the cemetery for meditation.  We sat there feeling what the families who buried loved ones must have felt so long ago and enjoyed  the beauty and serenity of the cemetery.
