Altar to San Judas Tadeo

On our way from Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo we stopped alongside the road to take a bathroom break (there aren’t many bathrooms or convenience stores between Monterrey and Nuevo Laredo). When we stopped, we found this altar to San Judas Tadeo (Judas Thaddeus) next to a fenced in area with chickens and a rooster. It looked like it was being actively managed by someone, although there didn’t appear to be any houses nearby. This altar was approximately 30 minutes from the Mexican-American border in Nuevo Laredo.
