Rest Area?

I-40 westbound, mm 36, Ozark, Ar.
Is this the ultimate rest area?







Actually this small cemetery is fenced in on the grounds of this rest area. It has 3 graves all dating 1899, but not the same day.




This 100+ year old Mulberry tree is inside the fence. Maybe it was planted to mark the graves.





What can I say about the tree. Well, it has character . Many people use this rest area and never see this. It is on the side that the trucks park on.

Very interesting--I "Googled" 1899 and flu and found the last four digits of a number to report the avian flu is 1899!!

The graves are certainly the final resting place and I guess Rest Area would be a better name than cemetary.

I only know of one or two mulberry trees around here. I used to love to eat the mulberries when I was a kid.
