Mary M. Morris, who was she? I don't know. What I do know is her grave is on a hill in the Carrizo Plain national monument in California. It's a desolate place along the dreaded San Andreas fault where farmers once lived. Today it's a place to see wildflowers (if we have a wet year) and take photographs during the spring. The rest of the year I imagine there isn't much to see. Enjoy the photos and imagine what life was like there in Mary's time.

P.S. It's hard to read but the marker reads Died Aug. 1896
