San Jose Church in Algodones, NM

October 29, 2013  •  3 Comments

I was riding my bike out on Highway 313 past Bernalillo, New Mexico and as I rode through Algodones I spotted this church and I turned my head, looking back over my right shoulder I saw this scene.
I went back several days later in my truck and my 5D2 and spent over an hour taking photos of this area. The light didn't turn out as dramatic as I'd hoped but I still liked the light.

I like riding, on my motorcycle, out to San Felipe Pueblo and I usually ride all the way into the pueblo itself. It's a nice ride and I love to look at the Rio Grande from that area as the sun is going down. There is no photography allowed on the pueblo so I have to just enjoy the scene without a camera. Take it in for a few minutes, wave to the villagers that pass and ride back.

I was told there is an Old Cemetery behind this Church or some other Church in Algodones?
My Dad said he used to go there with his Father as a child to visit an Ancestor of mine, who by the way I am looking for! Does anyone know of a list of people that are buried there? I am Looking for Ignacita(Ignacia)Encinas(Ensinias) Mother of Leandro Luna born 1861-1940 Leandro's Death Certificate says that Jose Delores Luna was his Father but Family Lore States that Leandro was Fostered by the Luna family. Help! My Dad has many Relatives in the Algodones and Bernadillo area Last Name Luna. If you know anything Email me. Thank you so much! Cindy Luna
