Caption

Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun on Cheyenne mountain overlooking Broadmoor and Colorado Springs, Colorado. This tower is one of the most unique structures in the world. Built like a medieval castle, it is all metal and stone - no wood enters its construction. A Beacon light burns perpetually in its tower. Murals of the early day West and of Will Rogers cover the walls of its interior.
