Weird, I have relatives buried in this little cemetery. I hadn't seen it since child hood, but it looks roughly the same! Thanks for the amazing pictures.

My pleasure. I'm looking forward to moving to Oregon this year.

Oregon is a wonderful state and I certainly miss being back there. Do yourself a favor and develop a taste for obscure beers and weird politics. Oh, and have fun hunting down the random, abandoned cemeteries and ghost towns!

It helps that I already have a taste for obscure beers; odd politics; and fresh, locally grown food.
I'm sure I'll find plenty of interest, though my other hobby is photographing Catholic churches. There seem to be some decent ones, though the cathedral in Portland is a bit of a let-down compared to what I'm used to. Any suggestions?

I know this is a late comment, but the ecclesiastical architecture of Oregon is in a rather sad state. However, the cemeteries are quite nice and I do suggest taking a trip to Mt. Angel. The parish church and the monastery are something to behold, as is the natural scenery. As well, there are some quaint but well loved, pretty Catholic churches in small, rural towns like St. Rose in Monroe and St. Mary of the Sea in Astoria. Best of luck in your search!
