When I was young, our family went camping a lot, but that never stopped us from finding and going to church each a child, I thought it quite annoying, but now I am so thankful for the example my parents lived! They saw God everywhere and were thankful..... This makes me think of those days!....vf

" There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations." Washington Irving Magnificent Photo~ Vicki

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Oh Vicki....absolutely beautiful words...and totally true! Thank you!!!!!!

Camp Hill, PA - United States

Sandi, have you been inside?; know how old? I'll bet it's as rustic and quaint inside as out. The steps with no railing appear to be almost an afterthought. And the cross on the lawn - just in case you missed the one above the door. I'd love to drive up some Sunday and sit in on a service. Congratulations on a charming capture. vtd

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Thank you so much for your encouraging and thoughtful comment, Geoff. I have not been inside but would love to! I was wondering myself if it is still used for services. Next time I travel that way I will try to find someone around and ask them! The day I took this photo there were four deer standing right by the little building you see through the trees in the background. I took a few photos of the deer but they didn't turn out well. But what a magical encounter!
