    On the southern edge of the Ozark National forest, I found this on a ridge, just above Altus, Arkansas. It looked so great, I thought it was new, but it was actually built in the late 1800s and just recently was completely restored. The parishioners are largely the descendants of the men who built it by muleskinning everything up the mountain.

    The inscriptions and stations of the cross in the church are all Latin or German.

    Pretty much a classic Romanesque church:

    This was over the exit. "As a deer longs for a running stream, so my soul longs for thee, my God." A very commonly-used Psalm in the early Christian church.
