Yes, a motorcycle.

But before we get to that, go here and check out those aerial images. You may have seen them before in National Geographic or something. Take as long as you want; I’ll wait.



So, that photographer is also the genius behind this amazing collection of motorcycles. The Patient Spouse and I spent an enjoyable couple of hours here the other day, making the $10/person entry fee the very best bargain in all of Dallas. There were two friendly employees who were more than happy to talk about the motorcycles as long as we wanted, but were also happy to leave us alone, too.

And I didn’t even LIKE motorcycles before I visited this place…

Every Opportunity

Even the fence around the sewage-treatment plant has become a place to hang crosses in memory of loved ones.

Side Business

Just across from the famous church, you’ll see Vigil’s Store, which seems to be doing a brisk business selling chile-related products. I bought a little bag of dried green chile powder. (The storekeeper told me she enjoyed watching me take a deep breath of the scent, with my eyes closed and a smile on my face.)

Delia Anaya

Here at the sacred site of Chimayó, there are mementos and memorials everywhere, like this one for Delia.

Only tourists but the view is nice

This is the view from the picnic shelter on Interstate 40, just west of Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Is it any wonder that a David Byrne song* came to mind?

We’re only tourists in this life
