Trip Report Maitai On A Mission: 21 Missions To Be Exact

Jump to last reply

I turned 59 (damn, that's hard to write) last Sunday and realized that in all my years living in California, I had only visited a Mission once. My concern that day in 1978 was that I was forced to wear a brown tux (yes, brown) to be in my friend's wedding, so history was not top of mind.

A few days ago, Tracy and I hopped in the car and drove to Mission San Gabriel Arcángel in San Gabriel to take a self-guided tour. It only took about 90 minutes or so, and we have now made it our goal to go to all of California's missions. I will update here each time we go.

If you click on the link below, it tells the tale of Mission San Gabriel Arcángel (with photos), our first in this Mission mission.
