|St. Jerome Chapel, Taos Pueblo, New Mexico|
was one of those New Mexico afternoons where the clouds paint the sky and distant
seems so clear you can almost reach out and touch it.
Fighting destroyed the Pueblo's San Geronimo Church after the murder of U.S. Territorial Governor
Charles Bent in Taos during the Mexican-American War. St. Jerome Chapel was built to replace the
church in 1850. Taos citizens named Bent Street for the governor.
