Holy Hill

The kids and I took a lovely hike up the huge east tower at the Holy Hill Shrine with some friends yesterday. I happened to have the camera with me on this absolutely beautiful day and the views were gorgeous. If you click on the photo and go to the Holy Hill set, you'll find a few more photos as well.

The Carmelite priests and brothers will be celebrating their 100th anniversary at Holy Hill next week on, what else, the great feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. You can read about the history of Holy Hill here, but I couldn't find out how tall the towers are. I did find a reference in an article that said there are 178 steps to climb to the top of the observation tower.

Holy Hill is gorgeous!
I was there years ago when visiting a friend in Milwaukee. It was the best part of the trip. Such a peaceful place.
