Weddings? At a YMCA camp? Oh, yes.
At the very end of the road to Camp Greenville, atop Standing Stone Mountain sits the Fred Symmes Chapel, built and donated to the camp in 1941. The chapel is open air and non-denominational, designed as a place for worship and reflection. It is a very popular site for weddings.
The view from Fred Symmes Chapel is absolutely stunning. The location has come to be called, "Pretty Place." Here is the view of the front of the chapel.
The interior is lined with bronze plaques, most with lovely poems and scriptures.
A large wooden cross at the altar overlooks a panoramic view of the mountains. The scripture on the wooden beam above the cross (from Psalm 121) reads, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help."
The view is lovely in all seasons, but the autumn colors are breath-taking. The color is a little past peak with less yellow and more orange and brown.
Even the nearby trees are bursting with color.
From "Pretty Place" the view stretches for miles. (I have no idea what the cleared space represents, but I intend to find out.)
