Photo detail

The Steamboat Springs Cemetery includes a paupers section, where 66 people are buried but less than half of the deceased are identified in cemetery records. Each grave is marked with a white-washed wooden cross, and these simple tributes dot the bottom portion of the cemetery’s hillside.
