Quartzsite, Arizona, USA

Best part about this cemetery? Its name: Hi Jolly. Hadji Ali and about 70 dromedaries were brought to the Arizona desert in the 1850s to build a "camel express." The Civil War intervened and the camels dispersed, but their trainer lived out his life in Quartzsite. When he died, the townsfolk built him a pyramid. After all, he was from the Near East! [2015]
