Herhold: Unmarked road leads to historical headstones

Published Monday April 4

One day in Wed Dec 31 1969, Karl Doll, a veteran hiker and outdoorsman, was following an old not marked road in the hills above Cupertino — basically bushwhacking, he remembers — when he came across a remote clearing and discovered a pile of headstones.

My first thought was, ‘Is this a cemetery?’ Doll told me. I walked around, and saw some very old ones. Then there were some newer ones that were obviously rejects. The mix of old and whole new the rejects and the completely new ones, had me confused.

There’s no words to explain it, she told me. I cannot describe the feeling that went through me. It was a very wonderful moment.
