#262 – Friday, August 30, 2019 – Hanging Out

It was rainy and overcast in the morning.  I left the campground at noon and drove to Camping World and on to Rapid City.  Did a little shopping, stopped for a pedicure and had a 20 minute chair massage.

I visited the Chapel in the Hills which is actually in the middle of Rapid City.  The chapel is very small.  I did not take any indoor photos as they were preparing for a wedding.

“Nestled at the foot of the Black Hills, on the western edge of Rapid City, SD, the Chapel in the Hills is a quiet retreat open to all visitors. As a special ministry of the South Dakota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the chapel reaches out to vacationers and local residents alike, who look for a place to experience God’s peace in their busy lives.

The chapel itself is an exact reproduction of the famous Borgund Stavkirke of Laerdal, Norway. Our chapel was built in 1969 as the home for the Lutheran Vespers radio ministry (see “History“). Today, visitors from all around the world find the chapel to be a place of beauty and inspiration.”

I drove thru Sturgis which is a small town of less than 7,000 people with a lot of biker bars.

Back to campground at 7:30pm.
