On Saturday, September 4, 2021, I visited Oswald Cemetery off CR 3221 in the rural outskirts of Clifton, Bosque County, Texas. It is southwest of the Lake Whitney Dam. The occasion was a family Labor Day Weekend trip to Lake Whitney, Texas and the cemetery was a 17 minute drive from the lodge me and my family were staying at. We usually stay at a lodge on the northeast side of Lake Whitney in Hill County. The western shore of Lake Whitney is in Bosque County and we stayed at the Cliffview Resort lodge at the south end of the lake just across the Lake Whitney Dam, in the community of Laguna Park in Bosque County. If you google Cliffview Resort it says it's in Clifton, Texas because that's where the nearest post office is. Oswald Cemetery has been on my list to visit for quite some time but a good opportunity hadn't arisen before last weekend. I got up well before sunrise, well before anyone else was awake, made some coffee to go and rolled out. Sunrise was at 7:07am. My first picture above shows that I arrived at the outer gate at 7:10am. There was a layer of thin clouds on the eastern horizon which made for another fantastic country sunrise among my Texas cemetery visits.
