It would be joy indeed to be up where the pillars of stone guard the pass. Up in the rarified air with a wayfarer's cross to remind one of The Maker of all this splendour.

Rugged territory.

Very dramatic and powerful photo. The cross is not something I'd expect to find up there but then I've seen other of your photos where crosses have been placed in the countryside. We have people running around town putting up little signs that say, "Pray," or "Jesus."
