It seemed like whenever we went through Hatch, the Chile Capital of the World, we were on our way to somewhere else with no time to stop. I would look longingly at the shops displaying their chile ristras, but we wouldn't stop. This time, we had to get an errand accomplished in Hatch, so I got to go to several of the shops. What a blast! Here is a triptych of the colorful chiles hanging in ristras. Taken during a walkabout in Hatch, New Mexico, USA.
