This week's challenge was to take photos looking up or down. These are from my archives.
This is the miraculous staircase at the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe. In 1878, the chapel was built with a 22 foot choir loft. However, the loft was built with no thought about access to it. Often, choir lofts had rope ladders but this chapel was for nuns. A normal staircase wouldn't fit in the small chapel. The sisters prayed about it and said a Novena and on the 9th and final day of the Novena, an out of work carpenter came to them. He buiilt it with no nails, only wooden pegs. He left before reciving payment and was never seen again.
This view, looking upwards to an exposed root tree, is from the Garden of the Gods area near Colorado Springs.
Denver has canyons of glass towers in it's downtown area.
