Two-Lane Tidbit: Stations of the Cross, San Luis, CO

Sitting atop La Mesa de la Piedad y de la Misericordia (the Hill of Piety and Misery) in San Luis, CO, the oldest town in Colorado, is the Shrine of the Stations of the Cross. Fifteen bronze statues created by local artist Huberto Maestas depicting the Stations of the Cross, the final hours of Jesus’ life, are positioned along a ¾-mile dirt trail that ends at the dramatic and beautiful La Capilla de Todos Los Santos or Chapel of All Saints, a Moorish-looking church built in the 1980s. Parking is free at the base of the mesa near the start of the trail and the views are stunning.
