Santa Rosa de Lima

Santa Rosa de Lima was an early 18th-century Spanish settlement in the Rio Chama valley, near the present-day town of Abiquiu in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico. By the 1730s Spanish settlers were moving into the Chama River valley, and by 1744 at least 20 families were living in the present-day Abiquiú area, where they founded the Plaza de Santa Rosa de Lima.Wikipedia

There are gallon jugs of water all around the monument with hearts and words on the jugs – “please water the roses if they are dry.”  A photo showing the jugs is in the highlight reel.  Travels this day took me by Ghost Ranch and the Echo Ampitheater in Carson National Forest.
