Campo Santo Cemetery, San Gabriel
A courtyard at the San Gabriel Mission is home to the oldest cemetery in Los Angeles County, first consecrated in 1778. I thought this would be an appropriate image to display during Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) festivities, first celebrated by ancient Aztec tribes in memory of their deceased ancestors.
