Simla Cemetery

Another installment of Prairie Cemeteries features Simla, Colorado where I was born.  

Simla is about 50 miles east of Colorado Springs on Highway 24.  


U.S. Route 24 (US 24) is one of the original United States highways of 1926.[1] It originally ran from Pontiac, Michigan, in the east to Kansas City, Missouri, in the west. Today, the highway’s northern terminus is in Independence Township, Michigan, at an intersection with I-75 and its western terminus is near Minturn, Colorado at an intersection with I-70. The highway transitions from north–south to east–west signage in Toledo, Ohio.

The photos above were taken recently on a pilgrimage back to Simla.  Downpours in the background which is pretty typical this time of the year.
