ROADSIDE CHAPEL: South 285

Goodbye…goodbye…parting is such sweet sorrow

Heading out of Antonito on S-285, it is about time to exit the beautiful and ‘Colorful’ state of Colorado.  Before you cross the border into New Mexico however, there is a roadside chapel worth dropping in on.  Maybe you don’t need a full “20 mins” for this stop, but drop in anyway and reflect on your time in this ‘not-to-be-missed’ state.small painted chapel front with cross on top

 

There’s not a restroom or picnic area here, but this is a nice place to say a prayer, or enjoy a quiet moment of reflection – regardless of your personal beliefs .

Although it is homemade and crude, the chapel has been lovingly used for years. Go inside and check out all the mementos that have been left behind, and feel the prayers said here. Maybe there is something you’d like to leave behind as well.
