Uploaded: July 14, 2011


Each year thousands of people travel to this church in Chimayo, New Mexico. Some travel by foot from Albuquerque, hundreds of miles away.

OH MY GOSH! How did I miss this and why did you not tell me? Andlook at you with the Topaz filters! "The Wall" is a spectacular find and the angle is just right. I want to come to see you and park right in front. Please be sure to let me know when you win something, I am so slow getting to all of the photos that you must help me out. CONGRATULATIONS.......Merna #9711504

You’re the kind of person who makes the world a better, brighter place…You worked hard for this, you made it happen, and you have a right to be proud. So enjoy these satisfying moments; you deserve every one! Merna
