Our Lady of the Rockies

Our Lady of the Rockies on the Continental Divide...
Looking down from on high...
Our Lady of the Rockies looks down on Butte Montana from high up in the Continental Divide. She is built in the traditional image of the Virgin Mary although she is dedicated to women of all faiths everywhere, particularly mothers.

Despite the fact that it is the fourth tallest statue in the United States at 90 feet high, the Lady is barely known. If we hadn't read about her online during research for our trip, we wouldn't have known about her either.

Visitors to the statue first attend an introductory video at the ticket centre in Butte. It's a bit cheesy and hasn't been updated in decades, but you can see it for yourself on Youtube.

90 feet of inspiration...
