I thought these went INSIDE the grave?

I was out driving near Bethel when I spotted this thing at a cemetery... It was just sitting in the graveyard, nowhere near any particular plot. I thought these things went over the casket after it was placed in the ground. Why would this be out? Kinda creepy.

the "thing" is called a burial vault ( yeah I work for a funeral home ) Some folks just chose not to bury them below ground. Some vaults are very beautiful though so I can see why they would want to keep them above ground. Some like the one in your photo are rather plain. So I'm with you there. why keep it above ground. :) Great photos! I'm enjoying your blog!!
