I, on the other hand, was excited to take a few minutes to walk through Yosemite's Pioneer Cemetery and pay my respects. It is a small cemetery that is sandwiched between Yosemite Village and some of the park housing. I always enjoy walking through the cemetery because it is not typical at all. There are a wide range of markers in the cemetery including stone monuments, wood markers, and names carved into large rocks.
There is an excellent website ( http://www.yosemite.ca.us/library/pioneer_cemetery/ ) that is a digital copy of a booklet called Guide to the Pioneer Cemetery by Lloyd Brubaker, Laurence Degnan, and Richard Jackson. This website includes all of the names found on markers in the cemetery and short notes about each person.
Here are some photos from my visit this summer:
