Mother Cabrini Shrine ~ The Stairway of Prayers

 

Mother Cabrini Shrine

 
 
Hiking the Stairway of Prayers has been on my bucket list for quite some time.

 
We've passed it a number of times on our way up and down from Leadville.

 
Never seeming to have enough time to stop. 

 
So this summer, we decided to run over after swimming lessons. 

 
This put us there in the bright summer afternoon sunshine.

 
Aside from being a little warm, it was the perfect time of day for a climb.

 
Fortunately for shorter legs, there are benches scattered all along the pathway to the top.  As you can see the view is quite spectacular from up there.  Don't forget to check out pictures of the Cathedral.
