Mount Auburn Cemetary is not literally hidden behind a locked ivy-covered door. Nope, this National Historic Landmark sits beside the Charles River just a few minutes west of Harvard.
My friend was the first to discover its beauties, and several weeks ago she took me for a visit. We enjoyed strolling the solitary paths, hiding underneath the weeping birches, and quietly treading among the resting places of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Isabella Stewart Gardner. For those few hours, we completely forgot we were in Cambridge.
Hope you have a great Friday!
(Here in Boston, our hearts are still healing from last night's game. Go Celtics!)
