World's Tallest Crucifix.

World's Tallest Crucifix

This crucifix looks creepier in person than in photos. The cross is not at the church; it's in the cemetery right by it, on top of a hill. The cemetery has a couple of loops to drive through, but no parking. The road ends at the church and there's a large parking lot there. I went just as the Saturday evening service ended, and the narrow windy road was scarier with all of the cars leaving.

Worth a quick stop. Took a minute to find with trees in the way.
