this is a repost of a shot that I took while in Sedona a couple of years ago..... I thought it suitable for this theme............ here is a little bit of it's history :
The unique architecture & location of the chapel are the inspiration of Marguerite Bruswig Staude, who went on a trip to NYC in 1932. She observed that a cross could be seen in the newly constructed Empire State Building when viewed from a certain angle, and was inspired to build a church based on that design.
Staude kept an eye out all over Europe and the US for the ideal location, and she was especially struck by the beauty of Sedona, Arizona. She decided to build her chapel there, which would be a "monument to faith, but a spiritual fortress so charged with God, that it spurs man's spirit godward." The Chapel of the Holy Cross was completed in April 1956.
It's truly a sight to behold!!! Photographs can not do it justice......
