Terrace Park Cemetery, Holtville California is home to the burial ground where over 600 migrants are laid to rest in unmarked grave sites. Bricks line up in imperfect rows a top the parched earth identifying each body who did not survive the extreme conditions in the desert. It is here where family members are able to put their loved ones in a final solemn resting place .

This burial site has been full since 2009, Now the remains of migrant travelers are cremated and their ashes scattered in the ocean.
