Recently, my husband and I took a few days off from our jobs.  We had different plans for the Summer of 2020, but... well, I don't have to tell you, do I?  It's 2020.  Instead of the trip we had planned, we decided to take a bunch of day trips all around the State of New Hampshire.

We re-discovered one of my favorite places that I used to visit frequently when I was a child, The Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, NH.

Most people describe the Cathedral as being an outdoor church, but it's so much more than that.  I hope the following pictures will give you a small sense of the beauty and peace of this place.  It has changed a lot over the years and I'm think it's for the better.  (A better explanation of that is below.)

The man who greeted us at the Cathedral told us about the ice storm that took out hundreds of trees surrounding the outdoor alter in 2008.  Because many of the trees are down now, you can see Mount Monadnock clear as day!  (As a matter of fact, it was a clear day!)

The Cathedral of the Pines is an extraordinary place.  I can't possibly describe to you it's beauty in the words that God Himself has given me to try.  All I can say is you may be moved, the way I was, when I walked around this place as a child and now as an adult.  It's breathtakingly beautiful and only a short drive away.
