This ledger stone is a perfect postcard, complete with accurate U.S. stamp and postmark. The "return" address is the birthdate and death date for Gary H. Canturbury, buried in Silver Plume, Colorado.
This monument is a full replica of Lester Drake's mining cabin. It is located in Denver's oldest cemetery, Riverside.
This unusual marker is a heart-shaped swan.
Although this Mausoleum is not in Colorado, I'm including it, as it still fits the category. This pyramid-shaped mausoleum can be found in the Angelus Rosedale Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. This cemetery has more than one pyramid-shaped mausoleum.
This lovely abstract marker, made of granite, is elegantly carved, and set in two pieces. It is located in Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs.
