This Former Chapel In New Mexico Has Spellbinding Views…And A Fascinating History
Sometimes history can seem magical. Folktales, historical accounts that seem just a little too good to be true, and events that cannot be fully explained are just a few ways this happens. In fact, there are similar stories that have taken place here in New Mexico and today we’re going to check out one.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
