Mount Moriah in Deadwood. You can visit Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane, and get great views of the hills.

There's no need to lie. I haven't lived in Wilkes-Barre for over 30 years. I grew up there and have been to Hollenback twice just to walk around and look at the lovely mausoleums, statues, and distinctive grave markers.* I'd feel free to mention a cemetery where a relative or friend was buried.

*Once was when my father was in Cardiac ICU at the hospital across the street. That was his view from the window in his room. I went over there to be in a quiet, green place for a while.

Country cemeteries, especially those pioneer cemeteries on the prairies or plains, are often the refuge for rare and endangered plants and wildflowers because they have never been plowed.
