Weekly Photography Challenge: 'S' Stavekirke Chapel

Stavkirke Chapel, or the Chapel in the Hills, was built in Rapid City in 1969 and is an exact copy of the famous 840 year old Borgund Church in Laerdal, Norway.  Found on the western edge of Rapid City, SD, the Chapel in the Hills is a quiet retreat open to all visitors.
