I love certain freaky-looking skulls, as you might know. This is at the Shrine of St. Joseph of the Mountains in Yarnell, Arizona, the one tourist attraction there. The larger than life-sized sculptures are reinforced concrete, built in 1939 by Felix Lucero, portraying the life of Christ. Apparently the group that commissioned it was called the Catholic Action League of Arizona but it is now a non-denominational Christian retreat center supported by donations. There is no admission cost. Read more here.
Steps lead you to the Stations of the Cross through a lovely setting of oak trees and granite boulders.
