Picture Friday - To Church In El Refugio
Headed To Church: Pilgrims walked from "La Barranca" towards the church. The trek probably took them about 1.5 hours - down from the mountains, where they live. They walked in two single file lines. At certain points, they would sing. At other points, they would pop VERY loud fireworks (we call them palomas -illegal in the States), as announcement of their arrival. This lets other people know the location of these specific pilgrims. Groups like this come to El Refugio from all over.
