We made a trip out to Canyon Lake in late summer and passed by this breathtaking scene outside of Goldfield, Arizona, near the Superstition Mountain Museum.

Not so much.

Disappointingly, the chapel is far less romantic than it looks.  It’s actually a movie memorabilia museum that shows old movies once filmed in the area and Apacheland.

According to the museum’s site, the chapel survived a fire in 1969 and another one in 2004, and was taken down piece by piece, nail by nail, to be reconstructed on the museum ground.
