A Gallery of pix from our annual pilgrimage to CHIMAYO,N.M. 2012

The Prologue to the Canterbury Tales
Geoffrey Chaucer (1340–1400)
 
 
WHAN that Aprille with his shoures soote

The droghte of Marche hath perced to the roote,

And bathed every veyne in swich licour,

Of which vertu engendred is the flour;

Whan Zephirus eek with his swete breeth
        
Inspired hath in every holt and heeth

The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne

Hath in the Ram his halfe cours y-ronne, 

And smale fowles maken melodye,

That slepen al the night with open ye,
       
So priketh hem nature in hir corages: 

Than longen folk to goon on pilgrimages,

And palmers for to seken straunge strondes, 

To ferne halwes,  couthe  in sondry londes;

And specially, from every shires ende
        
Of Engelond, to Caunterbury they wende,

The holy blisful martir for to seke,

That hem hath holpen, whan that they were seke. 

Whether you be off to Canterbury or Chimayo, take care and watch out for traffic. The drive from Albuquerque to Chimayo has over the years been made easier with the Santa Fe WIPP truck route. On your return to Albuquerque, might I suggest staying on the 'truck route' passing under I-25 and cruising straight up in to the Sandias on SR 14, a gorgeous road that will provide driving thrills. An optional stop in scenic Madrid is always an option. 

Should you choose to avoid the crowds, Chimayo is of course 'open' year round. Bring a small container if you want to bring back to your home the blessed dirt from the shrine. Best eating near Chimayo is to be found at the Ranchos de Chimayo Restaurant.

Happy Miracles and Easter/Passover Weekend.
