The Miraculous Stairway of Loretto Chapel

The Miraculous Stairway -- an architectural wonder, it has two 360 degree turns with no visible means of support, and was made without nails. It has a story/legend telling of a travelling carpenter who built it and mysteriously disappeared without pay... some believe he was a saint. You can read about it here: Santa Fe, 9-2-11.


Submitted to Photo Friday's "unwind" theme 3-16-12, and Photo Sunday's "curved" theme 11-12-12, and the "swirl" theme 4-3-16 -- and it got 3rd place in votes, woo-hoo! and thanks everyone for voting at
