A pioneer cemetery at the foothills of Chimney Rock makes for exciting photography opportunities. The sign at the entrance to the graveyard reads, “Chimney Rock Cemetery – During the westward migration through this pass, many died as they looked for a better life.”
Chimney Rock itself rises over 300 feet above the relatively flat plains surrounding it. A small town named Chimney Rock once stood at the foot of the sandstone formation with a post office that operated from 1913to 1922. Fun fact, the Native Americans would refer to Chimney Rock with a word that means “elk penis.
