Monument Hill Cemetery, part 1

Hot Springs County Cemetery Division also manages this cemetery which is on a plateau above the city.

The monument below is inscribed in the cyrillic alphabet.

The monument below stands about four feet high, and it is surrounded by graves of early white settlers.

Below is a close-up of the above monument. It reads: GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF WYOMING

Below is a homemade grave marker. Before coming to Wyoming, I did not know that cemeteries allowed such homemade creations.

Riverside Cemetery in town has a great network of underground sprinklers. This cemetery, however, is not maintained to the same degree as the sprinkler attached to a hose (below) indicates.
