Re: New fort Rosecrans rule
Out of curiosity, I checked the cemetery schedule for 11/4. There was a burial at 10:30, which I assume is the reason for the groundskeeper's request. I could be totally wrong, of course, so I agree we should follow the rule. Ft. Rosecrans is a very special place for birding, walking, or reflection.
I carry a small Lumix point & shoot camera when I bird, which I use to take photos of birds I cannot identify. I use the photos to figure out the identification at home. I had a groundskeeper ask me why I was in the cemetery, and what I planned to photograph. When I explained the binocs & the camera are for birding, he told me I could photograph the birds, but photographing the soldiers' name & information on the headstones is not allowed unless the deceased is a family member. On a later visit, I had a groundskeeper approach me and tell me that photographs are strictly forbidden in the cemetery, and I could leave or put the camera in my car and continue birding.
