The mountains, the desert, the serenity, the communion with nature are the chapel. I go to church every Sunday, however the pews, the organ, nor the pulpit make the chapel for me.Sent from my pocket machine using Big Bend Chat mobile app

Interestingly, the book of Psalms refers to nature as an entity that “speaks” to us as well. So when we’re in places like the Bend maybe we’re not just observing natural beauty but actually having a conversation with it.

Chimneys Alcove 1 by House Made of Dawn, on FlickrI've visited a couple of Amerind religious sites. A buddy took me fishing on Lake Amistad and took me to one. The view west at sundown had the sun disappearing into a canyon on the other side of the lake. It would have been just as impressive without the lake. I am of the opinion that the ancients had religious aesthetics that were just like ours.
