Missing Great Buildings
Filed under: Cool Projects — Tags: — nedpelger

I’ve been to Sedona, AR twice and enjoyed Slide Rock State Park and all the red rock beauty that is Sedona. The kids and I bumped and floated our way down the 1/4 mile long natural creek water slide. The photo below gives an indication. Dave Dieterly, an estimator friend, told me it was his kid’s favorite stop on a West vacation. Our kids felt the same way as did many others to whom I’ve recommended it.

But when I recently came across photos of the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona, I wondered how I could have missed visiting this great building. I’ve had time in Sedona and missed this marvelous facility. ¬†Look at the lines on this structure

and how it fits so perfectly into the surroundings.

This would certainly be worth the trip to explore and experience. I love this last photo that just gives a sense of being there.

Being in Sedona and not knowing about the Chapel makes me wonder how many other buildings and sites I’ve went right by without knowing. On a trip this summer, we stopped by Doune Castle in Scotland completely by happenstance. It was a fantastic tour that we easily could have missed.

Is there a website that lists great buildings and bridges to visit? I couldn’t find one. That would be a good idea for someone other than me to develop. Do any of the existing travel sites have a function that would accomplish the desired result?
