More Outdoor Mass Photos

I don't know how it is where you live, but here in Wyoming there is snow on the ground and it's bitterly cold outside. This is a time of year when one might understandably dream of summer and of lingering in the great outdoors when it's pleasant to do so (well, minus the mosquitoes and other little reminders that we were expelled from Eden). My thoughts therefore turn to a few magnificent photos of Masses celebrated outdoors, submitted by two readers some time ago but neglected by me until this wintry moment. The first six photos are obviously really far out-there outdoor Masses, and all the more impressive for the beauty and reverence with which they are conducted. The last three are of Mass done in some sort of car-accessible park structure, but once again demonstrating "the way to do it right" -- including, one might add, the ad orientem position.
