Tomb of the Frontier King?

This faux-log-cabin tomb is found in Denver’s Riverside Cemetery. It makes you wonder what Davy Crockett’s grave looks like – hopefully he’s as well taken care of as Mr. Drake here. This picture was taken by Eric Purkalitis in October of 2005. He has a bunch more of the same cemetery, along with numerous other striking photos chronicling life in Denver. Visit his Riverside set
