One of the great pilgrimages in France is the Pilgrimage of the Gitanes or Roma people (sometimes called gypsies). They come in caravans to the Mediterranean seaside town of Les Saintes Maries de la Mer.

The pilgrimage is centered around the patron saint of the Gitanes, Sainte Sara or the Black Sara. On May 24th they carry her statue from the Cathedral Crypt to the Sea to reenact Saras arrival at this place and her subsequent greeting of Mary Jacob and Mary Salome who arrived here after their expulsion from Palestine. (They were followers of Jesus). Some believe that Sara was the servant of the Maries.

This is The Great Hunt  petroglyph panel located in Nine Mile Canyon, near Price, Utah. The canyon is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was once endangered by weathering and dust from industrial trucks traveling on unpaved surfaces. Much of the surfaces have been paved and many of the industrial leases have been canceled.
