Holy Land USA

Bring hiking shoes and plenty of space on your camera. Also do a tick check when you get back to the car. It truly is awesome.

Private property, still not open to the public!

Lil Bethlehem. Holy Land U.S.A.

Finally visited Holy Land. After reading about the potential danger, and seeing all the no trespassing and no parking signs I was a little nervous, more about coming back to find my car towed than anything else, so I kinda rushed through.

It might be good to come back in the fall as I think I probably missed some things hidden by foliage.

Holy Land USA is a constantly evolving wreck.

Holy Land USA only seems to be providing entertainment for the sac religious at current. The gate is closed, and rusty and there is a No Trespassing sign put up by a construction company. Not so much a place of worship, cause the only way to see the cross without committing a crime is from the highway. Those who like a little religious humor can give a hallelujah for this one.
