Forest Lawn Cemetery, Glendale, Los Angeles County, California

The oldest Forest Lawn Cemetery is located at 1712 South Glendale Avenue in Glendale, Los Angeles County, California

 

Vi tilbragte skuddagen bag verdens største smedejerns-låger på verdens mest berømte kirkegård, Forest Lawn i Glendale.
Forest Lawn i Glendale er den ældste af Forest Lawn's kirkegårde, indviet i 1906. Den er kæmpestor, og selv om vi har været her før, tror jeg stadig ikke, vi har set det hele.

We spent leap day behind the world's largest cast iron gates in the world's most famous cemetery, Forest Lawn in Glendale.
Forest Lawn in Glendale is the oldest of Forest Lawn's cemeteries, opened in 1906.
It is gigantic, and although we have been here before, I still don't think we've seen it all.

Bygherrens Tro

Jeg tror på et lykkeligt evigt liv. Jeg tror på at vi, der er efterladte, skal være glade i den sikre tro på, at de, der er gået forud for os, som tror på Ham, er gået ind i det lykkeligere liv. Jeg tror mest af alt på en Jesus, der smiler og elsker dig og mig...
...Forest Lawn skal blive et sted, hvor elskende, unge som gamle, skal elske at gå tur og betragte solnedgangens glød, mens de lægger planer for fremtiden og mindes fortiden... Et sted hvor de sørgende bliver trøstet og styrket, fordi den er Guds have....

Dette er Bygherrens Drøm; dette er Bygherrens Tro.

The Builder's Creed

I believe in a happy eternal life. I believe those of us who are left behind should be glad in the certain belief that those gone before, who believe in Him, have entered into that happier life. I believe most of all, in a Christ that smiles and loves you and me...
...Forest Lawn shall become a place where lovers new and old shall love to stroll and watch at the sunset's glow, planning for the future or reminiscing the past... A place where the sorrowing will be soothed and strengthened because it will be God's garden....

This is the Builder's Dream; this is the Builder's Creed.

Selvom det er verdens fineste kirkegård, er her heldigvis masser af beskedne tusindfryd.

Although this is the finest cemetery in the world, I'm happy to say there are lots of lowly daisies.

Day Camping/Boondocking Information

Oh, come on now, you didn't really think you could go camping at a cemetery, did you? Well, you can't. Really.
But this is a very hospitable cemetery, and in fact we did hang out all day and nobody bothered us.
There are lots of hills and narrow-ish windy roads throughout the cemetery, so a large camper might run into a few tight spots, but we had no problems getting around.
As far as overnight camping, no, obviously not. Even worse, the entire city of Glendale limits street parking of any "large vehicle" to two hours, so sadly you'll probably have to brave that L. A. traffic and get yourself somewhere else after 5:00 pm when the cemetery closes.
