Texas Chainsaw Massacre Cemetery

The metal arch that says "Baghdad Cemetery" has fallen down and is lying in the grass near the entrance.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Cemetery

Prior to visiting Texas, I did a little research (RA notwithstanding) to find some sites on the way north from Austin. On good authority this is the opening shot from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Spooky even in daytime. There is a barbeque shack in a small strip mall on the opposite side should you need ribs or rest room. Park here and cross the road.
