Santuario de Chimayo
This might be the reason for my fascination with the road side memorials. I've been to the Santuario de Chimayo several times and this last visit was one of the best. While I'm not the least bit the religious type I find that I'm easily engaged by religious shrines of all types.
Every time I've stopped at the Santuario there is a new addition. Clearly this is a very active congregation.
It is interesting to me that in the "gift shop" there are no "bargain" items for the faithful. The holy men of the church are as good at bringing in the "almighty" as they are at serving the "Almighty".
