Wordless Wednesday: In the Grotto

Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend, Iowa. This whole place is covered in geodes, the biggest collection in the world, I think. It is so very sparkly.

    It was pretty cool. It was closed, so we just saw it from the outside.

    If you happen to be in Iowa, it is worth checking out. It is not, however, worth a trip to Iowa just to see it.

    I think that technically this works, even if it is a pun. It made me giggle.

    Love the photos, looks like something out of a fairytale. :)

    I’m glad it made someone giggle besides me, I only got an eyeroll from the hubs.

    Holy crap that is AMAZING. What the heck is it doing in Iowa of all places? It looks so much like something I’d expect in Southern California.
