The Christ In the Desert Monastery is located in one of the most beautiful spots in New Mexico-next to the Chama river and surrounded by the most spectacular southwest geology you'll ever see in one place. Georgia O'Keefe settled down near this area. How she found it back then, is beyond me as it is truly far from the maddening crowd. I can't even begin to imagine what kind of a journey that must've been. It is easy to see why she loved it there, for the scenery and geology is spectacular.
This image is from the garden area that leads up to the monastery and church. It is designed for contemplation and meditation and is centered on the stations of the cross. In this garden there are 14 crosses representing the 14 stations which are 'scenes' of the Passion of Christ.
Here's an example of what I mean by spectacular geology:
