Giant Cross

Yet one more giant cross made of aluminum siding rises from the landscape. This time at the New Providence Baptist Church in Loudon, TN. I'm not sure of the height, but it seems to be almost exactly the size and construction of its predecessors in Effingham, IN, Groom, TX, Pigeon Forge, TN, La Follette, TN. Perhaps a bit shorter, it's hard to tell. You can't miss the cross -- it's right off of I-75 -- but you might miss the exit, especially heading south.
