Altar Screen

This was a rare treat – finding the tiny, ancient church in Truchas unlocked. The caretaker let us look around, and she gave us a bit of history of the place. This altar screen, for example, dates from the 1820s.

But the very best thing we learned is that she is the fifth generation of her family to serve as caretakers of the building.
