Route 66 Part 2...Tulsa OK to Lupton AZ.
Coming int Groom, TX one cannot miss the Giant Cross...Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ Ministries...This gigantic cross is just west of downtown groom and can be spotted from 20 miles away.
The basic steel structure of the cross was welded at a site located 40 miles from Groom and taken to the site where siding was attached to the structure.
The reinforced concrete foundations were poured and the different parts were assembled. And a crane was brought to the spot on seven flatbed trucks.
The cross' lower section was mounted on the foundations and the middle section was joined to it using 300 lb. (150 kg) steel pins.
At the base of the cross, around it, encircling it are several life-sized bronze statues depicting the Stations of the Cross.
