One of the highlights of the 2011 trip was our stop at Vashkivtsi.  We visited the cemetery on a wet, cool, overcast late afternoon. The stones featured many fine, intricate, detailed, well-preserved, and diverse decorative touches.  After the uninspiring stones that we saw during the first part of the 2011 trip we were thrilled to find such fine stones.  The cemetery was fenced and maintained but had an open gate.
