Cave Hill Cemetery

Originally uploaded by True North Two
Last weekend, we traveled down to Louisville to attend a friend's wedding--a beautiful rooftop ceremony at Glassworks.

The next day we decided to see a few things before heading back to Cincinnati. We visited Falls of the Ohio State Park, the Edison House and Cave Hill Cemetery.

Cave Hill is home to some notable burials, including Harlan Sanders. We managed to miss his grave because we couldn't find a brochure about the cemetery (they were all gone). I didn't figure this out until I got home!

We did, however, have a nice hour driving around in the alternating rain and blinding sun looking at the different monuments. One that caught my eye was this sphinx stone, which symbolizes protection and guardianship.

If you're ever in Louisville, this is a nice stop. It was very peaceful and had it not been so hot and damp, we would have walked around.
