Dia de Muertos
Photo and caption by Virginia Lazar
Day of the Dead, a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. This holiday focuses on gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember family members who have died. This photo was taken in Hornitos, California...a little town right outside one of the gates to Yosemite Valley on the western side. The candlelight vigil takes place through town to the St. Catherine's Catholic Church (built in 1862) on the hill.
