Taking the High Road from Santa Fe to Taos takes you through Chimayó, which features a church with some miraculous dirt that is reputed to cure all sorts of ailments. In my estimation, the real miracle is that pilgrims come from all over the world and scoop up dirt from a small hole in the floor, filling plastic bags and glass jars with this holy mineral--yet the dirt never runs out!
