Good Friday in New Mexico

The Catholic faith is one of many rituals, that may differ from place to place. Here in New Mexico, the pilgrimage walk is one ritual that endures. The walk to the Santuario de Chimayó is perhaps the best known, but a smaller, yet no less important pilgrimage walk occurs every Good Friday at Tomé Hill. Located in the Rio Grande Valley, south of Albuquerque, the Hill see a stream of faithful throughout the day, who climb the rocky elevation to reach a three-crossed altar at the top. Meanwhile, down in the valley, there are other displays of faith, including reenactments of Christ's last hours, as seen in the Passion Play. Here are some photographs I made in Tomé this year.
