Cemetery of Fish and Game?

Several deer visit the Fish family plot

Mount Olivet Cemetery, in Salt Lake City, Utah is a pretty interesting place. The second largest public burial ground in the city, the tombstones span the years back to 1877. It’s an 88 acre spread of over 90 varieties of trees imported from other areas. Deer love to eat the flowers that adorn the grave sites and squirrels have an awesome playground in the vast canopy of trees. And birds. Lots of birds.

Over 30,000 people have been laid to rest here, representing members of many churches and races. Because of its beauty, the cemetery is popular as a park and it’s typical to find people walking, jogging, sitting, reading, enjoying a sunny day, or wandering around with a camera.
