InSPIREd Sunday - One More From the Enchanted Highway

While I was scanning for the next sculpture along the Enchanted Highway in North Dakota I spotted a tall spire off in the distance. (A somewhat flat landscape has its advantages sometimes.)

We rolled into the quiet little town of Lefor. No bustling downtown, no post office or stores, just a few dirt lanes lined with homes and a Catholic church. Everything was neat and tidy around the church. Founded in 1898, St. Elizabeth's Parish is part of the Diocese of Bismarck.

As we pulled back out onto the Enchanted Highway, we noticed the Lefor State Bank. Well, what's left of it. :-)

I hope you enjoyed our trip down the Enchanted Highway. If you are ever in southwest North Dakota near Dickinson, take the detour and see these amazing sculptures for yourself!

Meanwhile, come join us at InSPIREd Sunday and share your photos of religious buildings - be it a church, temple or other architectural detail.
