Chapel of the Holy Dove

I took a little trip to a big place this weekend. The GRAND CANYON. I'd never been, so I figured I better go. With a new job starting soon - It may be a while before I can take a vacation again.

The drive from Tucson is about 5.5 hours. I took the scenic route and only had a handful of caches for the whole weekend planned. I wanted to relax, take pictures and enjoy the view. I did a whole lot of that and it was great.... But I wish I would have put more caches IN my GPS. Even if I wasn't going to GET all of them I could have used it for reference when I stopped for other things.

For example I wouldn't have missed the cache near this Chapel I stopped to take pictures at...

Holy Dove

I passed this building and immedately did a U-turn.

Such and odd shape....

Here is the view inside...

Such a CUTE little place with a great view! I can imagine it as a beautiful wedding spot (though I think I'd have to deck it out a little more.)  Kind of reminds me of the All Creeds Chapel near a previous geocaching find.

So going back to what I was talking about in the beginning of this post... There is a geocache here. and I didn't know it. Grrr.

I've always said "Geocaching takes me to neat locations I wouldn't otherwise see" ...this is kind of the reverse... "This is a neat location, there should be a cache here."

I had to go add a note to the cache page since I know the cache owner.


  1. I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I'd love to see that little chapel.

  2. Gives you a reason to return, as if a trip to the GC isn't enough to want to see again!
