Sentinals

The two large trees on either side of the entrance to this small cemetery look like guards to me. Not keeping people out, but rather out of respect for those whose remains lie within the gates. It's like a stern welcoming crew - or those guards at Buckingham Palace that never smile but everyone enjoys seeing them at their posts. They just fit there. It's where they're supposed to be, and they do their job well. This cemetery is located on the grounds of Fort Walla Walla. There are lots of cool things on this land, and I'll get around to showing you more of them as time goes on.

What wonderful old trees! I agree with you - they just fit there.
