I stopped by the Santuario de Chimayó a few weeks ago. I hadn’t been there for some years — it had become a bit too busy and commercial for my taste. I was driving to Taos that day and saw the turnoff, and made a split-second decision to visit. There were fewer people there that day and it was very peaceful — one of the positive effects of COVID-19, perhaps — and I was glad I’d made the sudden decision to turn off the highway.
