On Sunday, for no particular reason other than I wanted to snap some pictures, I took a short trip out to the tiny parish of St. Mark.

The church is anything but tiny, though.  It’s a gorgeous, towering building that holds a place on the National Registry of Historical Monuments.  (You can learn more about it here.)  A rather picturesque cemetery lies behind it.

Quiet, cool, but sunny enough for rolled-up shirt sleeves, it was the perfect Fall day…
