  • Get up early and go. Even before the sun breaks the horizon, the view will adjust your perspective in ways that are hard to describe. Then, when the sun actually appears and lights up the clouds, you ...  more »

  • Absolutely gorgeous views from a rustic open-air chapel. Facilities are not completely accessible, but sufficiently so for the majority of folks using it. Photography from the pews is...challenging with the dark interior and bright outdoors.
  • So beautiful here. Even on a misty, Cloudy morning it was worth a 2 hour drive here . The views are spectacular. The chapel is small but comfy. The inspirational quotes are nice. It's peaceful and feels good to just sit there and ponder.
  • I didn't want to give it any stars because I was forbidden to go in. We went to prerty place and the sign said closed from 3 to 6. We got there, through the gate at 2:57 and the man workong there said they were closed. I said please let us in we'll be quick. He still would not. Mind you, there were people still in the building and cars in the parking lot. So I got out to take a picture of the outside since clearly i was not the only one there or holding up any closing process. So the guy walks towards me in a threatening manner and says ma'm if you don't leave, I'm going to lock the gate so you can't leave and call the police for trespassing. Unbelievable! Don't take the 15 drive off the main road unless you know it's open. What a waste of time and horrible treatment by the Young Mens Christian Association!
  • The most breathtaking view I have ever seen. Such a blessing to be able to come and sit in such a beautiful chapel and enjoy all God's glory!!!!!
  • A wonderful place to realize just how small we are and to take in the beauty of our Lord. I wish so bad that I could get married here. My fiance and I have been engaged for 15 years this May... An October wedding would be so beautiful!
