Take a drive with me on the High Road to Taos where we will Start our drive in Ranchos de Taos and drive on Hwy 518 over the mountains to the famous Santuario de Chimayo, a very special church built in 1816. The church is visited by thousand of pilgrims who believe in the curative powers of the ground it is built on.
This scenic drive will take us through the Sangre de Christo Mountains where we will drive through the small villages of Chamisal, Ojo Sarco, Truchas and down to Chimayo. There are cemeteries, churches and vistas! We could even detour to Penasco and onto the Picuris Reservation if you like.
Once at the church I would be happy to maybe light a candle, say a prayer or good thought for you or someone you love.
A drive to The Santuario de Chimayo has been, and remains
one of my most favorite day trips in the Taos area.
