I am still writhing in pain from the 2.5-mile bike ride yesterday. After ages, I rode a bike and it was tiring, though a refreshing experience.
Sloth is the right word for me.
But, I am happy that I decided to explore the Spring Grove Cemetery and, a bike was the perfect mode. Normally, I wouldn’t think of visiting a Cemetery, but I had heard some great reviews and 2.5 miles seemed achievable compared to the 4-mile far Mt. Airy Forest.
With Spring in full bloom and a cloudy sky, we couldn’t have asked for a better day to ride and explore.
On the way to Cemetery
I clicked while he twirled
Incorporated in 1845, Spring Grove Cemetery serves as a glorious part of Cincinnati’ history and has preserved the families of many notable locals including Procter, Kroger and Taft. Designated as a National Historic Landmark, Spring Grove is the second largest cemetery across the US.
That’s the Grand Entrance
To me, it was unimaginable that someone had put so much thought to the beauty of a Cemetery. Serene and tranquil!
I was awestruck at each turn
Of course, the first bloom of Spring played a huge part in the whole setting. And, then I found the first lake.
Engulfed in the beauty of nature, we spent quite a bit of time exploring, clicking and applauding.
The second one, Geyser Lake, was bigger and prettier. Plus, we had some company.
The swan and waterfowls were unperturbed by our presence.
Tiny crossover bridge….♥
Slowly I am falling for the Queen City which I labeled as dull initially. You just need to shed your inhibitions and explore with an open mind.
Add this to your list of must visits in Cincinnati.
To cherish life completely, you must embrace the truth about death.
