We started at Daingerfield State Park to avoid the bad storms.

This image was taken with my modified Nikon 995 (internal IR filter removed) and a visible light blocking filter.

After two days in Texas, we survived the horrible Oklahoma roads and arrived at Carthage, MO.

We visited the Precious Moments Chapel before Doris went to the women's retreat in Joplin.

IMG_0823.jpg (30067 bytes) The Blue Springs gardens West of town were not yet flowering due to the late freeze.  This natural spring produces 38 million gallons of water a day which flows into the White River.
A few miles West of Eureka Springs is a beautiful glass and wood chapel, Thorncrown Chapel.  Check out their web site for a detailed history and more beautiful pictures. Thorncrown.jpg (23714 bytes)

We went to the Passion Play and also visited the many attractions near the play.

The best was the Holy Land Tour which is about two hours, and it is GREAT.  You travel on a tram to several stops with Holy Land replicas and excellent presentations.

The tour starts through this replica of the East gate of Jerusalem that leads to the Hinnom Valley.

IMG_0900.jpg (17483 bytes) Doris FINALLY had a chance to get her stamps out for a little "Stampin' Up".  WiFi was not available, so the internet connection was using the cell phone (about 10K connection).
