A UNIQUE GRAVEYARD - MADRID, NEW MEXICO




When you're driving in Northern New Mexico and you hang a right just for the fun of it; find yourself bumping along an arroyo and then onto a snaking road that takes you past houses that look like this - then you know that more delightful surprises await...



IF TOMBSTONES COULD TALK



While Northern New Mexico boasts many, many charming graveyards, this cemetery takes the cakeIt is so uniquely Madrid - a former ghost town that has morphed into a vibrant BOHEMIAN art destination - just an hours drive from Santa Fe.  


The 'headstones' in this rough and tumble graveyard are eccentric, to say the least, but these very-personal memorials seem to capture the story of those that have passed, in a noble and intimate way.
