When we were visiting the local ghost town, Fairbank, on Thursday, we hiked the <half mile trail up to the local cemetery. There was not much left of anything there now, but there was a nice bench to rest on and view the valley below.
The picture above is one that I took just about ten years ago on March 27th, 2005. I made the rocks a little more colorful than they probably actually were, even back then, because I like bright colors. I'm sure they looked like that when they were first put there because I only intensified the colors that were extant in the photograph. Over a hundred years of bright Arizona sunlight can tend to fade colors!
There seem to be stuffed animals at the headstone area, so it is possible that this is the grave of a child, but there is nothing visible to read to indicate who might be resting there.
A short dig into Google produced this interesting, but brief, site about the history of Fairbank and its cemetery.
Tomorrow I will post a picture of what is left of the mill mentioned at the end of the document above.
