Sunday Selections Being on the Mountain

He and I went last year, on the way home from a wedding in Bend.
HE ADORES stone works and fine craftsmanship...he HAD to Sit on these , and absorb them!

Inside the Lodge, there are huge fireplaces to sit near ...if you had come in from would warm ya right up.
The  large fireplace's are used every year for the "YULE LOG" -live show- on Christmas Eve, on our own Oregon Public Broadcasting.

If you don't have a fireplace, just tune in and sit by theirs..via the TV!
 Comes live with neat music too~

This  Lodge is one of Oregon's National Monuments that was commissioned,  in part, by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. His "New Deal" policies back in the 30's , made it possible for
"the spirit of cooperation and teamwork" to be born here, to support the economy in the rough times. He dedicated the lodge in 1937.

The grand scale of the of the place is awe inspiring

It if fun to see all the handy work...very detailed.
 My man's Grandpa was one of the skilled craftsmen that got hired on the huge project.
My  man is proud to know that!

This piece of artwork is the fondest  memory my man had as a child coming to visit the lodge,
a carved LAMB at the base of the banister greeting all ~ right inside the front doors. 
He loves seeing it.

On this particular day late last summer, this sight, was our parting one~
