This mission has had three occupations. First the Spanish, then the Mexican government, then the United States government. One of it's occupants was Mrs. Breem who came over Donner Pass and was one accused of cannibalism having fed the children food of an unknown origin. Walking through town up to the Mission, we discovered Roosters ... gorgeous ones!! And lots of the most beautiful blooming cactus that I'm sure was growing here when the Spanish arrived. The stalks at the base were up to two feet thick.
So many more images, but I'll save them for another day. On the way out we passed another adobe building, built in the early 1800's and still standing. This parting shot shows the door reflecting the cloudy day.
