Jolly Buddha

Madrid, NM
On a recent camping trip we took a ride over to Madrid, NM, just to check it out. It's an old mining town that has a renaissance as a haven for quality artists. It feels somewhat like Arroyo Seco, or Woodstock, NY --- a little bit of "hippie" feel. Probably that's because of how much color is used to decorate (see future posts) ... and because of spiritual objects placed around, whether from Eastern culture or Native American or others.
