The view from the Basilica

I took a few pictures from the front lawn of the Basilica last month on a dark and stormy day. First, the Basilica itself.

Here’s the view looking southwestish from the Basilica toward the Walker.

Hmm. What’s that on the roof over there, to the southeast?

Ok, that’s what it looked like, but I’m still mystified! Anyone?

Um, I may have taken a few editing liberties with the next picture, but I couldn’t help myself – that elm is lovely!
