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 cake.
It 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.
