Giant Cross - Groom Texas

We have seen this giant cross from a distance along I40 in Texas, but had never stopped to see it.  This year as we approached the site, we decided to go see what it was all about.  Quite the place to see.  If you have the chance to get off I40 to take a look you'll be impressed - the cross is 190 feet tall!

That is the Last Supper in the foreground, and lifesize Stations of the Cross around the base of the cross.
