Cruz Blanca

La Morada de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in Taos is the largest and most important of the early 19th Catholic lay chapels that checker northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.  The morada has fallen into decay but repairs have begun to fill and seal its eroding visage.  Note the wire lathe that is ready for a fresh skin of mud, water and straw.
