St. Joseph is the patron saint of Happy Homes. No wonder we’re all so happy in Yarnell. In 1939 a group called the Catholic Action League of Arizona, from Phoenix, commissioned Felix Lucero, a Native American from Trinidad, Colorado, to create the Stations of the Cross for an open-air shrine with statues that depict scenes of The Last Supper, Garden of Gethsemane, The Way of the Cross and the Risen Christ. Lucero sculpted all of the work out of reinforced concrete and the life-sized pieces are set along a trail among oak trees and boulders. You can visit this quiet Shrine of St. Joseph of the Mountains just off Highway 89 in Yarnell, Arizona.
