Gravity Hill in a Graveyard

This gravity hill is located at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier. The effect is clearly seen: vehicles in neutral, skaters, beer cans, etc., roll up hill. The location is in the Cemetery so it adds to the dramatic effect. It is the slope sandwiched between Garden of Memories and Garden of Devotion. It starts from Garden of Love to Terrace of Hope.
