Why do we have a fascination with cemeteries? I remember as a kid I would love to go to the cemeteries and look for the oldest gravestones I could find and read what they said. They were all so different, and then, of course, you saw headstones where a child has passed away, and you wonder what must have happened to them.

I thought it would be fun to take a road trip and visit some cemeteries that hold some very famous people. To start with how about Doc Holiday, Holiday was a gambler, gunfighter, and dentist, and a good friend of Wyatt Earp. Doc Holiday died of Tuberculosis and buried at the Linwood Cemetery in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Alfred Packer, he was an American prospector and confessed to cannibalism during the winter of 1874. He and five other men attempted to travel through the high mountains of Colorado during the peak of a harsh winter. He is buried in the Littleton Cemetery.

Buffalo Bill is one of the most famous to be buried in Colorado. He receives over 400.000 visitors every year. Buffalo Bill died in 1917 and buried on Lookout mountain. He was responsible for the Wild West Show.

I think it is time to take a road trip and explore.
