Santa Fe Scenes

I really liked this Southwestern wreath which I found on a church door in Santa Fe. Much more heat than holly.

This marriage of adobe and bleached bone was across the street from the San Miguel Mission, the oldest continually-used house of worship in the country, dating from 1610. Local Native Americans used the site for religious rites since the 13th Century.

I'll post something on my superficial observations about religion in the bible belt versus the Southwest this week. (Scroll down for a nice example of bible belt religious statuary.)
