Today's picture is the Chapel on the Hill in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. I was out driving around earlier this year and sort of got lost. I turned on my GPS function on my phone to get me back to familiar territory and it sent me down a gravel road. That in itself isn't unusual out here - there are plenty of gravel country roads. Then again, I've heard of horror stories, especially in the winter, where people follow their GPS directions only to get stranded on snow-bound roads.
So off I go following the GPS directions. I crested a hill and lo and behold! A coppery spire catches my eye off in the distance. I ignored the GPS and headed towards the church. It was a fabulous find for me.
What little information I could find says this was originally Hamden Lutheran Church and was moved to its present location from nearby Audubon. It is a non-denominational church and is only open for services during the Summer months. You can also rent it out for a wedding.
