Day Trip to Chimayo and Taos

We headed up to Chimayo and Taos for the day. First we drove through Tesuque where we had stayed for 5 weeks last year

We went to Chimayo specifically to get some more mystical dirt with healing properties:


Chimayo once had a bad drug scene, including heroin distribution. When we first came to Santa Fe last Easter we saw the pilgrimage over 3 days heading to the church, people walking many miles along this road

After spending some time, getting some dirt and lighting a candle for Maureen's old college roommate who recently died, we headed to Taos

The 3 of us went for a run along the Rio Grande

After a good run, a great meal and some shopping we headed back to Santa Fe. Here is Blake's Lottaburgers welcoming us back on our way through Espanola
