Title: Don Smith: Held in the Arms of my Desert, I Assuredly Rest in Peace

Comments: This "tombstone" is a simple piece of cast iron placed in the ground in the cemetery in Terlingua. The ground is so rocky there that "six feet under" is impossible. When Don Smith died they dug down about a foot, placed him in there, and covered him back up, leaving this humble, but beautiful, epitaph.

Location: Terlingua, Texas
