  • I took friends from California there last Sunday after eating at Giant City Lodge. They loved it. I told them all the States they could see...also told them I use to bring my boys up there for picnics and rolling down the hills...and my second son was married there under the word Peace...my favorite word. The new cross is just beautiful. So peaceful there...had a nice breeze...God's country. Need benches closer to the cross looking out in all directions.
  • It's a great place to take pictures. I think average time spent here is 15 minutes.
  • Interesting place with good view of the country side. I went to a wedding here which was pretty neat. Not a fun drive on the back roads, but I guess that was part of the adventure.
  • What a sight to see! This massive monument stands boldly overlooking the beautiful winery countryside.
  • Breathtaking views! The history for how this was accomplished is well worth the drive out there.
