Holy Hill is The Basilica of The National Shrine of Mary. The Discalced Carmelite Friars inhabit the monestary and welcome visitors year round. Its priceless stained glass windows and magnificent mosaics, boasts a breathtaking view of the southern Kettle Moraine Countryside. Pilgrims walk along the half-mile outdoor Stations of the Cross with 14 groups of life-size sculptures representing the Passion of Jesus. Shown above, we are climbing the 178 steps to the top of the observation tower inside one of the churches. The dramatic view of the rural surroundings and the skyline of Milwaukee on the horizon was incredible. The picnic was wonderful.
