Our Lady of the Rockies--over Butte, Montana

A beautiful, gigantic statue of Our Lady sits on the Continental Divide (elevation 8510 feet) overlooking the city of Butte, Montana. It is an astonishing sight to be sure. The statue is non-denominational, dedicated to all women, especially mothers.

Information on it can be found here: Our Lady of the Rockies Website.

The statue is 90 feet in height and is a stunning eggshell white color. Despite its enormous size, it can't be seen as well as might be expected (it's 3500 feet above the city and a few miles away).

Below are some photos from the web site:
