California Missions Tour: Mission San Miguel Arcangel (San Miguel)

San Miguel Arcangel
Founded July 25, 1797 (16th mission)

As I drove to San Miguel, the temperature rose. The foggy and drizzly weather from yesterday was quickly forgotten. The mission is located at the end of a run down, dilapidated town.

The mission itself was quite nice. It had plenty of artifacts, including olive presses and a cannon. There were no ropes, metals bars, or plexiglass to separate the visitors from the exhibits.
