SANTUARIO DE CHIMAYO

Chimayo: there are actually two pigeons on the roof
Lake Santa Cruz near Nambe and Chimayo
Running stream, field, and mountains in back of the church
My day trip was so relaxing and fun! I took about 160 pictures and I'm bummed because I forgot to take a video. But oh well - another day trip in October when the leaves are turning.
I haven't been to the church for about 9 years and it has changed. They have a big new parking area, new upgrades, a new chain link fence that was filled with handmade wooden twig crosses, and new outside seating and stations of the cross. We went inside the church, lit candles, said prayers, and scooped healing dirt from the hole in the floor. It was a good day.

Love the photos. Santa Cruz lake - I had forgotten about that lake. when I was about 20 years old I fell asleep in an aluminum row boat on that lake and got the worst sunburn of my life. In bed sick for three days - ha!
