RunKeeper map! Even though it sits right in the downtown area, once you're inside the cemetery the sounds of the traffic go away, and I can suddenly hear the birds, the sprinklers, and the breeze blowing through the leaves. There are lots of interesting monuments, and of course several famous graves (including Stephen F. Austin and lots of Civil War soldiers). Since I have to wear dress clothes at my job, my biggest challenge is walking as far as possible without getting too sweaty and stinking up my shirt, but having such a peaceful place to walk in makes me want to keep going! I can't wait for the real Fall weather to get here (and it's not far away) so I can take my time and explore even more.
