Fields of the Wood: North Carolina's Christian Theme Park
In this episode, Tommy and I travel to Murphy, North Carolina to visit what is possibly the largest biblical monument in the United States. The 300 foot wide Ten Commandments monument is part of a 200 acre Christian based theme park built in the 1940's by the Church of God of the Prophecy and let us tell you... it is MAGNIFICENT. Regardless of what your religious beliefs might be, it would be difficult not to visit this place and find it truly a work of art and a labor of love. Admission is free and the park is open 7 days a week from 7-7, year round. It also has a spectacular hiking trails and elevation gains, as well as a cafe and gift shop.
Two empty nesters who have been together since we were kids, exploring our backyard and beyond! We enjoy history, the outdoors, camping, cooking, eating good food, but most of all, we enjoy just having a great time and taking you along for the ride!
