Sion Epiphany Lutheran Church on a late winter afternoon.
I love being able to catch the failing light through the trees just to see those long blue shadows on the sparkling snow...it's one of those things that just never gets old.
More long blue shadows stretch across the cemetery behind the church...
...and looking closely to the left you can see a well traveled trail in the snow made by friends and relatives.
The church and grounds are still maintained by the German descendants and pioneer families who settled the area. That in itself is worthy of at least a little praise.
Inside reveals a feature I have found in only one other church...a corner altar.
And a lace valance curtain on each and every window.
A stark view from the altar.
Last look at the little country church in the snow.
