The Alpha's trip swag

So, The Alpha was part of a really nice mission trip last week. Destination: Eclectic Mountain Town. And their non-work time included the requisite tourist-trappy Christian destination. The gift shop on premises contained this Rubikesque wonder:

Rubikesque. Not quite trademark-quality stuff for $1.99... but at that price, The Alpha simply couldn't resist having one of his very own.

And then, his t-shirt of the week... front side:

(The outlines are really white, not pink... still haven't replaced the rickety camera.)

And a favorite quotation on the back:

So, there you go.

I've been in tourist trappy Christian destination. That town literally scared me. As I toured "the holy land" all the tour leaders could talk about was how they couldn't wait for the rapture to come.

Honey leave me behind!

I was there with my parents about 40 years ago, when it wasn't nearly as built up as it is now. Is it still pleasant to visit, or is it just a total Bransonesque tourist trap?

Oh, it's not too Bransonesque. And I don't think any other town has quite the same peacefully coexisting mix of hippies, fundamentalist Christians, and big tough bikers.
