Gethsemani Abbey, Trappist, Kentucky

I haven’t had any success adding photos to Facebook, but I have just uploaded the first batch of photos to Flickr.

The photos are of the first day-and-a-bit of the pilgrimage, from Ottawa to Gethsemani Abbey, Kentucky.

Gethsemani is a community of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (commonly known as the Trappists).  Thomas Merton was a member of the Gethsemani community.
