Taos, New Mexico

White Sands, New Mexico. The desert is located in Tularosa Basin New Mexico. Its white sands are not composed of quartz, like most desert sands, but of gypsum and calcium sulfate. Unlike other desert sands, it is cool to the touch, due to the high rate of evaporation of surface moisture and the fact that the sands reflect, rather than absorb, the sun’s rays.

There’s a chapel in Santa Fe with a spiral staircase and a legend. The nun’s wanted a staircase to reach the balcony of the chapel as the original architect suddenly died. They were told that a normal staircase would be too large for the chapel, and felt a ladder would be unsafe. Needing a way to get up to the choir loft the nuns prayed for St. Joseph's intercession for nine straight days. On the day after their novena ended a shabby-looking stranger appeared at their door. He told the nuns he would build them a staircase but that he needed total privacy and locked himself in the chapel for three months. He used a small number of primitive tools including a square, a saw and some warm water and constructed a spiral staircase entirely of non-native wood. The identity of the carpenter is not known for as soon as the staircase was finally finished he was gone. Many witnesses, upon seeing the staircase, feel it was constructed by St. Joseph himself, as a miraculous occurrence.

I love the mystics and miracles of New Mexico

The San Francisco De Asis Church at midnight near Taos Pueblo and bathed in street light. The moon was out and I was hoping the church would be bathed in moonlight but oh well!
