I like the unusual man made structure jumping out of the rock and showcased by the blue sky. This must have been an amazing shot to capture. Happy trails Carolyn. #9832373

Spectacular, striking, and amazing are all adjectives I would use to describe this chapel.

The Chapel was designed by a Catholic woman, artist and sculptor, Margurite Brunswig Staude, to honour her parents and was completed in 1956. It stands between two peaks of red sandstone, and is a stunning addition to the landscape. Its total height is 250 ft and the cross is 90 ft.

It is non-denominational even though it is under the protection of the local Catholic diocese.
