An endangered Cemetery
The three box tombs of the Amis Cemetery, Culleoka, Valley Creek Road, behind a new wooden fence. Looking closely we see Miss Kitty (name unknown) in the center of the photo under the fence serving as our greeter. He/she is probably defending some good mouse hunting territory here.
