The Chapel of the Holy Cross

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by unorthodox traveler on January 8, 2001

This unique, and very popular tourist site, is built right into the red rock on a hill overlooking a valley and situated between two large sandstone peaks. The exterior chapel blends in so well with the surrounding glory of nature that I was surprised at how basic the interior was...almost disappointed until I spent more time sitting in a pew and taking in its simplicity. After a period of time, the 90 foot cross touched some spiritual nerves within me.

I parked my car on the road below and walked up the steep hill to the chapel.I was fortunate in visiting this place in late afternoon and apparently avoided the tour buses.
