California Missions Tour: Mission San Francisco de Asis (San Francisco)

San Francisco de Asis
Founded June 29, 1776 (6th mission)

It's about noon on Day One and I've arrived at my third mission. Suddenly, I realized the origin of the names of Church Street, Dolores Street, and the Mission District in San Francisco. It should be noted that the little white building on the left is the original mission, not the grander basilica on the right. I was also surprised at the densely packed cemetery in the back.
