Views from the chapel
This is a huge tourist trap, but it’s worth a look if you’re in to architecture. The Chapel of the Holy Cross was designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. It was designed in the early 1930's and built in the late 1950’s. Approximately 25,000 tons of rock were removed to build the structure.
