Tiny Church - St. Joseph's Chapel

Harsh gravel roads off the interstate. Probably wouldn't recommend in a car, was hard enough in a crossover SUV. It does look incredible though, very tiny and well maintained.

Found a much easier route out! Don't let Google maps take the back roads. Drive straight down 61st to 161st then turn left. Roads are in much better condition.
