Friday photo - from Chimayo, near Santa Fe, New Mexico:

Santuario de Chimayo through the gate(click for larger image)

The tiny town of Chimayo, not far from Santa Fe, is home to a shrine known for its miraculous healing powers. The Santuario has been healing people's ailments for centuries, and thousands of pilgrims visit each year seeking a cure. Many believe the secret is in Chimayo's healing dirt. (I've got my bag of dirt at home!)

Whether you're one of the fortunate who can leave your crutches behind here or not, it's a beautiful place to visit. The photo gives you an idea of its serene charm.

We do women's trips to Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. I love the southwestern feel, the wide open spaces, the spectacular hiking, and the rich multicultural history and ambience. And then there's the food -- mmmm. :-)

    Hi Phyl - Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your ankle. I can't say for sure that the healing dirt helps, but I know it doesn't hurt, and it could really help. It only makes sense to follow all available approaches, especially since your daughters visited and brought you some. I hope it works out for you!
