Bald Knob Cross

Swung by Bald Knob Cross yesterday afternoon and, while the grass has been kept up and the welcome center is in good shape from the outside, the cross itself is in pretty bad shape. All of the lights that used to illuminate it are broken out and I counted 19 of the ceramic panels covering it either missing or about to fall out. The view was spectacular as always, though.

I stopped at the coffee and gift shop that opened last year on the road leading to the Cross and the owner says the Friends of the Cross group has raised a remarkable amount of money towards repairing the Cross but can't spend any of it because of the ongoing civil suits.
