Cross / by Dave Hileman

This very large cross rises over the mangrove marsh of the DeSoto National Monument near Bradenton, Florida. The cross was erected by the Catholic Church to commemorate the arrive of 15 priest and friars to the new world. I imagine this small portion of the trail is on private property but it is very much a part of the Monument.
