Vinton – Chilcoot Cemetery ~ Sierra Valley, CA

We have a favorite area that we like to take rides up to ~ Sierra Valley (Chilcoot, Loyalton, Sierraville) and then on over to Portola, Ca.

I’ve driven by the Vinton-Chilcoot Cemetery a gazillon times, but have never stopped…that is until last Sunday.

There are some beautiful carved statues on some of those tombstones…thought I’d share. The place is dedicated to the Swiss-Italian Dairymen that settled the Sierra Valley in the mid-1800′s.

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)
