Abandoned Shangri-La -2

A double-feature today: Two shots of an old church or school (or both) near the shores of Lake Ouachita in the Tompkin’s Bend / Shangri-La area. You may remember that Shangri-La was a fictitious place in the novel Lost Horizon – which I read as a kid, and was later delighted to learn there was a place on Lake Ouachita with the same name.

In the story, time did not seem to pass as quickly in Shangri-La as it did in the “outside world” … but since this is actually down the road from there, I guess the magic doesn’t reach that far.
