Sonoma Cemetery #1 | Civil War & Revolution

Not only does Sonoma produce world class wines, top reviewed restaurants and some of the most beautiful wedding locations, we also have an immensely fascinating cemetery in the foothills overlooking the town.  The Mr. and I frequently walk through the cemetery as we make our way to the Overlook hiking trail, but this time we toted our cameras and really explored just a tip of the property, and there's so much more to see! The cemetery boasts "residents" that go all the way back to the American Revolution (1775-1783) and the Civil War (1861-1865) and walking through the plots left us virtually speechless!!

And while I'm sharing local secrets I have another secret that I've been keeping from you... My husband, aka The Mr., aka Mike has an amazing photographic eye and we've been having lots of fun taking these short photo trips together and you'll be seeing more of his work in the coming months!  So with that said, I'm going to kick off this 2 part post with his awesome images...
