Offroading: a Chapel in the Desert (Arizona)

Offroading: a Chapel in the Desert (Arizona)
  • On January 21, 2021

I believe the backstory of the making of this chapel is that it was made by a local offroading club for one of their long time members who was getting married. What joy! It was our 2nd attempt to discover it from random clues. It’s a perfect short ride… about 8 miles from home.

Weather

Sunny, 68-70F

Terrain

Flat – Sandy, Loose Gravel and Dirt

Remoteness

Cool breezes at top of Chapel ~2,126ft elevation

Nature Encounters:

A pair of Big Horn Sheep

Found it!

Only a short trail up. But it was a warm day so we still were on the lookout for rattlesnakes or the like.

Paint markers were provided in a small cup at the base of the chapel.

I recreate the "Sound of Music" gazebo scene:

First Time: After living and offroading in this area since we moved here… finally, we saw a pair of big horn sheep. They were both at the base of the chapel. When we got to the top of the chapel, they finally bolted across the way where they felt safe.
