Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Hockey Shrine (Snowmass)

The Hockey Shrine is on Snowmass.  It consists of some hockey sticks, some skates, a helmet, and some other items.  Several items in this Shrine pertain to Kyle R. Gronert, (cousin of Ed Petrosius), who died unexpectedly at age 52 on June 3, 2014, and who played and coached hockey at Craig High School in Janesville, WI, played for the UW Madison team, and coached the DePaul Hockey Club.

Photos of it are below. To see even more photos of this Shrine, see this Facebook photo album (you do not need a Facebook account to view the album):
