There is a short cut that I take to get through town a little faster. It's called La Ladera Road and it runs from the base of Meadow Lake hill and comes out near the Peralta Post Office on Hwy 47. If ever there was an unlit, twisty-turny, creepy road where the ditch witch may drown your children or where a ghost may appear in the backseat of your car, this is it.
Off La Ladera road, tucked away where it is hard to see and unnoticed by most passersby, is Our Lady Of Guadalupe Catholic Cemetery. The cemetery is sectioned off into three areas. There is the old area that is full and no longer in use, the current area where new graves are being added, and an area reserved for future use. All in all, there are about 1000 gravesites here.
All of my photos are from the old area and I only walked a small part, leaving much of it unexplored and likely warranting a second trip.
