To the west of College Place lies a cemetery on a hill. It overlooks the elementary and high schools, as well as offering a nice view of the university campus. I enjoy visiting here not because I'm morbid or even because I have a loved one buried here. But rather, the name of the hill this cemetery sits on is beautiful: Mt. Hope. I love the simplicity of the name and all that it implies. And the cemetery itself is beautiful as well, and peaceful. Sometimes I take my coffee here and sit and just enjoy the green, the birds singing, and the peace.
