Preparing for Pilgrims

-A A +A
By Arin McKenna

New Mexico highway crews set up floodlights along NM502 in preparation for pilgrims walking to Chimayo. Although the greatest number of pilgrims walk on Good Friday, pilgrimages take place year round, particularly during Lent. A large number of pilgrims walk at night on Holy Thursday. Law enforcement stops drivers at this spot a mile down NM502 to remind them to watch for walkers and to keep an eye out for impaired drivers.
