Chapel In the Hills and Custer State Park

Aloha Everyone,

The Chapel in the Hills sits on 30 acres of mostly forest with a beautifully manicured lawn. It is an exact replica of the Borgund Stavkirke which was built circa 1150 near Laerdal, Norway.

The chapel is small but has intricate carvings of dragons on the roof from the Viking era. Once you step inside, it is a quiet, restful, meditative place.

I also took a short hike on The Prayer Walk all the way to where a natural cave entrance is located.

Brooke is a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful volunteer. Here is Craig, the manager of Chapel In The Hills with Brooke.

J.J. and I decided to return to Custer State Park. We are staying at Game Lodge Campground. We have a beautiful site with a large grassy area and a small brook running just a few steps away.

Volunteers, Jo and her husband Al.

Aloha -- Cathi
