Credit goes to the Coal Creek Watershed Foundation's web page describing the Coal Creek Motor Discovery Trail for providing a suggested tour route and information about the area.

This cemetery is smaller and more remote, but it is similar to the Leach Cemetery in the most significant details. A large number of miners were all killed in the accident on December 9, 1911 at the Cross Mountain mine, and many were buried in this cemetery.

The approximate location is shown in this aerial view from Terraserver, and in this map from maps.yahoo.com.

Quote of the moment
Thrasyllus the Cynic begged a drachm of Antigonus. "That," said he, "is too little for a king to give." "Why, then," said the other, "give me a talent." "And that," said he, "is too much for a Cynic (or, for a dog) to receive."
~ Plutarch, Apophthegms of Kings and Great Commanders. 45 Antigonus I. ~
