On day 4 we headed home by taking the "High Road' (Route 503 then Route 76) which takes us northeast out of Santa Fe towards Taos. This interesting entryway was just outside the town of Chimayo.

As we arrived the 11:00 AM mass was just beginning in the Santuario de Chimayo Chapel. This is one of the most beautifully decorated and historic churches in the Southwest. All of the paintings (reredos) and carvings (bultos), and the construction itself, were done by local people.
