Welcome to Penitente Canyon
Penitente Canyon offers visitors the chance to climb, hike and bike among a never-ending tumble of strangely shaped giant boulders, spread out through four separate canyons. The main canyon takes its name from Los Hermanos Penitentes and is symbolized by the fading, blue-cloaked mural of the Virgin of Guadalupe painted on a canyon wall. Local legend has it that the mural was painted by three men, one of whom descended sitting on a suspended tire; the inscription reads 'Consuelo y Espiritu' (Comfort and Courage).
