San Francisco de Asis en Golden, Nuevo México

Just some snap shots on a short day trip. This church, camposanto and surrounding areas speak for themselves. I do hope that the panoramic shot of the actual entrance and path (walking away from church) to the church shows in its correct aspect ratio. (Plus an additional panoramic facing the church.)   Addendum 26 February 2013: Little did I know that it would snow over 6" later that night! But because of the heavy clouds and cold weather, I was not surprised. It would be great to photograph this in snow.  With I-40 backed up (closed) for a couple of days now, I imagine by the time I would have time to drive out there again, the snow will be gone. Notwithstanding, I guess this is why it's important to be in the moment. We can recover, record and memorialize, and everything else seems to fleet, as time goes on.

Madrid, New Mexico.  Took a drive after brunch with my Mom and brother on Mother's Day.  
The Coal Mine Museum and Theatre.
And no, it's not "MA drid".  It's simply Madrid, or Madrid - in English, and in Spanish, respectively.  The tonic syllable, the last syllable - <drid> 
is the same in both English and Spanish.
