Sunland Park - The gates opened early this morning for the annual Good Friday pilgrimage to Mt. Christo Rey.
Last year, more than 10,000 people made the climb.
Those we talked with found the 2.5 mile hike inspiring...
"It's very nice, very inspirational. A lot of people singing. Just a beautiful experience."
"I find it inspiring to find so many people here. People walking bare-footed. People carrying crosses. People praying and I find that, that's encouraging."
As many as 12,000 people made the trek to Mt. Christo Rey this Good Friday.
