The first thing that comes to mind when imagining Mountain View Cemetery its impressiveness. It embodies philosophy principles that encompass a link between nature and human triumph. Located in Oakland, California, Mountain View Cemetery is home to some of the most grandiose masoleums and crypts (appropriately named Millionaires' Row where many prominent people are buried) including three pyramid masoleums which is one the largest groupings of burial pyramids outside of Egypt. Due to the way Mountain View Cemetery is designed, walkways and wide avenues were cafefully placed to create a natural flow around the grounds. Because of this, the juxtaposition of the ambitious crypts and the indigenous surroundings creates a beautiful environment to contemplate the ambition of the pioneers of the region.
