I can't tell you how many times I've driven by this little log church, both in my years as Ranger Brandy and these that have followed.  I'd seen weddings and other celebrations numerous times, but I'd never once been inside.  Katherine and I saw the door open this past Sunday, so we stopped in.  I think it's open all the time, but I never knew that.

The inside is very rustic, but has a real feeling of reverence to it.  It was quite dark, but I was able to get a few pictures.  They actually came out lighter than it really was in there.

I thought it was interesting that you could see daylight through the chinking.  I guess this must be common for some types of cabins, with the invetible shrinking of wood.  Makes me think of the Little House books and Pa making things tight for the Winter.

One of the podiums has fire damage from an arson incident a number of years ago.

Here are the pews, set on logs.

It was obviously made with a lot of care and attention to detail.
