La Virgen de Chiriaco

La Virgen de Chiriaco

Photo taken on Sun. 11.03.19, aka yesterday, at Chiriaco Summit where the fabulous shrine to La Virgen stands next to the post office and diner.

Usually the Virgen’s shrine is bedecked in flowers, flags, and offerings of candles and other devotional items. But yesterday, the shrine and it’s general locale was the most cleaned up / cleared out I have ever seen it in years of stopping by to visit. It was practically minimalist, as far as a Virgin Mary shrine goes.

If you are driving between LA / Palm Springs and Arizona on the Interstate 10, make sure you stop at the Chiriaco Summit, not just to pee or get a Diary Queen iced something, but also to say hello to one of the most delightful shrines in California.
