John Lloyd's Grave in Alberta 2017

Well today I had an update from a contact over there, showing me how well this little... isolated and almost inaccessible small cemetery on the hillside is maintained.
The tidiness of this isolated plot is a credit to the people over there and puts some of our local UK graveyards to shame.

The man standing by the headstone with the rifle is Bill Taylor. He is the self proclaimed keeper of Lovett townsite & cemetery, and the only one with permanent permission to cross into the mining lease to attend the site.

If you look carefully, you will see that Johnnie is holding a rifle as he inspects the headstone. There were apparently some large grizzly bears in the area that day.
