    I have put some of the old mission photos below...

    I would like to see, with the size of members here on TW, how many LIKES I can get on my new Facebook page about the new book I co-authored.

    Would you pop in, and click like... and if the missions in Baja California and Alta California sound interesting, check it out: http://www.facebook.com/oldmissions

    Thank you!

    Just an update note, our book is now in its second edition with some new photos, additional data, and has been a great project. Thank you for visiting our Facebook page and ordering your own copy! California's missions are a great reason to get out and travel!
