Lakewood Cemetery, Minneapolis, MN

Lakewood Cemetery on a cold, windy day, spitting rain. Despite everything, heavenly!

Have you ever been here? This is one of those cemeteries so packed with beauties that even with a full-color, self-guided tour brochure there’s no way to see everything in one visit.

Madonna and Child

The staff in the reception building (with restrooms!), was incredibly helpful and organized. They printed out section maps so I could find specific grave sites.  Awesome!

The blustery weather definitely set a melancholy tone for the day, so next time I visit, I’ll make it in the summer and I’ll bring a picnic lunch. Trees and tombstones
