    We so often overlook what we have nearby. You’ve inspired me to explore the missions open for tours in San Antonio!

    I love visiting mission.There’s so much history in them that I love to learn about. I remember when I was young making a replica of one of the missions. I wish I kept it. πŸ™‚

    What a great post! I have long been wanting to do the entire Mission Trail but have only been to a couple. I had no idea how the Spanish ran the missions and just how much they were producing. A very interesting read.

    I love Aqua de Jamiaca too. It’s such a pretty drink. Great solution to serve the simple syrup on the side too.

    You seem to be geography challenged. San Juan Bautista is NOT in the San Joaquin Valley, nor is the San Joaquin Valley located on the Central Coast of California!

    This is an incredible course in CA history. I love visiting historical sites – for better or worse, it shaped the world we live in – and we don’t always notice what is in our backyard.

    Lisa – Super, look forward to hearing the details, heard that the missions around there are incredible.

    Jenn – I’ve visited about 5 so far, and look forward to checking all of the CA missions out, such an interesting part of history.

    Amber – Thanks! I was thinking as I put this post together, that visiting all the missions in one trip would be a great road trip. Check out CA and see a good chunk of history in the process.

    Local – Thank you for pointing out my typo, and I have corrected my oversight. San Juan Bautisto is located in San Juan Valley, not San Joaquin Valley – never day dream about upcoming events. Here is the link for anyone curious about San Joaquin Valley: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Joaquin_Valley

    Claudia – I agree with the backyard problem – I felt very much the same way especially when we lived in DC – did not take nearly enough advantage of the Smithsonian as I would have liked.

    Yes, which reminds me I need to know more about California too…

  8. February 1, 2010 at 8:41 PM

    This isn’t a mission impossible, really is a beautiful tour!! Extensive and fascinating description about California and its missions πŸ™‚

    Have a great week,


  9. February 1, 2010 at 8:50 PM

    Wow, you guys sure have a great sense of adventure…at 5 am in the morning! I’ve only really been to SF and LA…I need to take a better tour of CA!

  10. February 1, 2010 at 9:29 PM

    You inspire me! I’ve always wanted to do something like this, too. But the best I’ve done is to just visit a few nearby missions here and there when I’ve been on vacation elsewhere in California. You know how it is when you take for granted what’s in your own backyard. I think we’re all guilty of that at one time or another.

  11. February 2, 2010 at 12:15 PM

    the longer I’m away the more I am aware of how amazing California is. Can’t wait to move back! I’ve done the drive from SF to LA so many times, taking different routes even, but never have really stopped to explore the missions. Must do…

  12. February 2, 2010 at 6:40 PM

    Wow, another amazingly educational adventure. Made all the more interesting because it’s set in my own front (back??) yard. GREG

  13. February 3, 2010 at 7:08 PM

    I didn’t realize there were so many missions! I’d get up at five to go exploring. Such interesting history and so beautiful.

  14. February 3, 2010 at 8:59 PM

    A great tour! We’re also hoping to be on a mission to explore California this year. We were just in San Diego. Hoping to visit Northern California sometime this year too.

  15. February 4, 2010 at 9:20 AM

    What a wonderful tour!This is new to me and very interesting! I love agua de Jamaica πŸ™‚

  16. February 4, 2010 at 2:37 PM

    Wow, what a post! I really felt drawn to read every bit of it. It was so worth it, the history, the culture! Incredibly fascinating!

  17. February 5, 2010 at 6:35 AM

    That is one great mission! I’d accept it too. πŸ™‚ It is always so amazing to see how diverse states are in the US. I learned a lot about the diversity of KY when I worked for the university, but then you compare that to someplace like California which is equally diverse, but in a much, much different way.

    Here we’ve got the coal mines, corn fields, bourbon and horses. There you’ve got the coastline, Catholic and European past, redwoods and wine. The US is such an interesting place. I’m always saddened when the people we know from other countries only desire to see NYC. They are missing out. But then again, it is no different than someone going to Brazil and only wanting to see Rio. πŸ™‚

    Gosh, you would not believe what I got brewing on the stove as I’m typing this! Hibiscus syrup! I make my own concentrated hibiscus syrup from dried hibiscus (in Thailand I would use fresh) then mix that with unflavored seltzer water (1:4 ratio) and serve on ice. Since we’re in the middle of winter, I’m turning it into hot tea.

    So funny.

    And, yes, I would accept this mission too. Beautiful places.

    Tigerfish – I know, there is so much here to discover

    Gera – Thanks

    Sophia – 5:00 am would not normally be a problem, but we wake up at that time or earlier during the week, its nice to have one day to sleep in until 6 =)

    Carolyn – Agree so much to discover close by us

    Gastro – Learning about it myself, still need to do the drive between LA and SF

    Sippity – Definitely

    Reeni – I have renewed appreciation for them after doing the post.

    Natasha – SD is one of my favorite spots, hopefully we could connect if you make it to SF

    Erica – You would really enjoy it and there is something so refreshing about aqua de Jamaica. Love the tart flavor

    Ruth – Thanks! There is something to explore everywhere, don’t even get me started on Italy =)

    Lori – Great response and I agree – NYC is not a microcosm for the US. But if you have to pick a place its a good start. You have a great point about KY, you have to look closes and not just assume you know everything about it. I think back to a comment a companion made while we drove through KY, “just a bunch of farmland” True, but so much more!

    Leela – Oh, I love hibiscus syrup. Have only used dried, never fresh. I love adding stuff to selzter water, and I bet besides being refreshing it has a beautiful color. What a great idea. We’ve been having the hot version of aqua de Jamaica lately. Its chilly here.

  20. February 7, 2010 at 5:33 PM

    I know that I was in a couple of mission towns when I lived in California but never really knew that much about their history. Makes me want to go back and explore more!

  21. March 16, 2010 at 4:32 PM

    Thanks for the info… i’ll put it to good use πŸ™‚

    Hello, thanks for the virtual tour! I’m just wondering if you know the origin of that great pen & ink drawing of the Camino Real map of the missions that you feature on your Mission website post? It looks like its from an old guidebook or tourist pamphlet. I’d like to reuse it, but wanted to see if crediting the source or artist is possible. Please let me know if you’ve got a lead. I tried the “mfrshawley.org” in your caption, but it leads me nowhere. Thanks, Deborah.

    Hi Deborah,

    Not sure why the reference does not work, but if you do a google search for images for missions + california you should get, at least I did the pen and ink. From there you should be able to find the master source and hopefully the right person to help you.
