The Gringo Cemetery of the Rosario Mining Company, Honduras
Nothing like a snow day home to have me thinking back on past trips and adventures.
In June I returned to my beloved second country, Honduras. I was able to have a quick getaway to one of my favorite places, Cabaña Mirador in El Rosario. While there, my friend Michelle and I took a little hike around the village and on the edge of La Tigra National Park. Just up the mountain from the village of San Juancito sits an old mining town that was operated by a US mining company in the early 1900’s.
This post is focusing on the photos I took at what Michelle and I call the “gringo cemetery” where the mining company buried workers who passed away while they were living there.
Some may find cemeteries creepy, but I tend to find them peaceful. This one is fascinating. I hope you enjoy some of the details of this unique place.
