The Wayside Chapel is one of those places that just grabs your attention as you drive by. Here is an article about it.
The tiny church offers succor to travelers driving by, but only eight at a time.
While driving by on the Stevens Pass Highway, about six miles east of Monroe, Washington, you’ll see a tiny chapel that invites any travelers on the highway to stop and take a little break—but only eight at a time.
“Pause, Rest, Worship” reads the sign outside the miniature structure, and weary travelers from any faith can enter at any time, to look around the one-room, unstaffed church or pray for a few moments before continuing on their way.
Inside, there is a pulpit, four two-person pews, and some flower vases. And that’s about it.
The charming chapel was dedicated in October 1962, when Seattle was hosting the World’s Fair. It has seen some surface changes, but remains much the same as it did then.
It is a favorite with locals, some of whom have even gotten married or renewed their vows in the tiny wayside chapel.
Cute little rest stop, don't you think? Might be just the place to stop and give yourself a bit of time to get the mind calmed down.
Coffee out on the patio this morning...OK?
