When I was a kid in Boston, we'd regularly see the graves of Revolutionary War heroes, such as John Hancock and Sam Adams, and it helped to instill in me an appreciation for history and those that paved the paths we now walk. These photos are a somewhat random collection of shots I've taken of the graves of the western pioneers; those who came to California by wagon train to start a new life in a new land. (A couple of the graves are newer than that, but were worthy of inclusion for other reasons). Oh, and it's set to original music.
