One of my favorite places



Its not a photo per se but one of my favorite places in the world. Philmont scout ranch east of Taos NM. This view is near Cimarron State Park. I spent six happy summers in the sun at the ranch. One summer was on that eastern ridge (right) where we did interpretive history (gold mining). This painting is based on a trip a couple years back after fire had ravaged the area directly to the south and east closing the ranch for the summer. The following year Covid shared its charming presence with us.

That's very nice, the whole Northern NM area is one of our favorite places. I'm sure spending that much time up there you know of Chacon, Penasco, Dixon, Truchas etc. Maybe you know photographer Sharon Stewart in Chacon just up the road from the church. My great grandfather built the church in Chacon in 1879 and rebuilt it in 1920, 3 years before he passed away. In the early days it was a mission, the old building is gone but the newer mission school still stands across from the church. My grandmother taught at the old building in the 1920's. I envy you getting to spend all those summers up there, I spent mine in Tucson getting callouses from running around barefoot in 110 plus temps.

PS Have you been to San Lorenzo on the Picuris Pueblo? It is filled with beautiful artwork including some of Gerald "New Deer" Nailor, former Picuris governor. I have ancestors buried in the cemetery up behind the church.

I am familiar with most of those places at least in memory. Might have to go looking for that church- might be something worth painting. I have not been to San Lorezo but now its on the radar.



When the airstream comes out of dry dock I hope to spend time revisiting the area.

The Presbyterian church in Chacon is easy enough to find, it's at the end of the paved road. On the way there check out Holman, there is a very old, abandoned Presbyterian church there as well, on your left as you are heading up the road to Chacon. There is also the old Grist mill in Cleveland, just outside of Mora, restored and operational.
Here's a few pics of San Lorenzo from recent years, they will let you go inside but they did charge us a few dollars to take pics (we stopped at the office). They just let us go in by ourselves, nobody was around. The mud is in constant need of repairs and the locals do their best to keep it up.
The pueblo and San Lorenzo Church are at the end of the small, paved road running through Peasco.
My great grandfather was christened there in 1848. He later became Presbyterian and left to build the church in Chacon (el Rito Presbyterian Church), but that is another story that is still part of the local lore.
