Alone On A Hill

45CU7999

The Penitente Meeting House in Las Golondrinas sits alone on a hill. It’s a long, thin building with a door on either side, one window, a flat roof, and a thin bell tower that juts out of the front of the building. There is an old cemetery that sits off to the side with weathered wood crosses and picket fences marking the graves. Photos were not allowed in the interior. If you are not familiar with the Penitentes, the following wiki has a brief summary of the Penitentes in New Mexico: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penitentes_(New_Mexico).
