Geocache Description:


This is another in a series of caches that I am planning to use to bring you to interesting locations around town.  All of these caches are the little, tiny, sub-micro caches that attach with a magnet, so keep that in mind as you are hunting.

When you find the cache, sit on the bench and you will be looking at a lovely piece of public art called "The Broken Obelisk". If you look a little to the north, you will see a rather non-descript building of tan brick with dark brown doors. This is the Rothko Chapel. I will allow Wikipedia to do the job of acquainting you with the history and general run down of the chapel. .

This chapel was always a favorite spot for me. The area around it simply radiates peace and tranquility. The chapel itself is nothing much but it is cool and quiet and dark inside, all of which can be of immense value in our hot, noisy city. We used to make a regular stop here in my younger days when we were walking around the neighborhood. We were always welcome and we could cool off and maybe have a brief discussion with the almighty at the same time.

You can check the web site above for official opening and closing times and I highly recommend that you go at a time when the chapel and the nearby Menil Collection are both open.
