The Hill of Crosses in Lithuania

Located about two and half hours northwest of Vilnius, one will see a hill of crosses off in the distance. The history behind the site can be found here. The site is remarkable. I found myself wanting the count how many were there, but the task proved to be futile. I found it odd to see so many crosses in one place where some were rotting away and others were being trampled on. It was a juxtaposed mix of reverence and desecration.
