California Missions Tour: Mission San Diego (San Diego)

San Diego
Founded July 16, 1769 (1st mission)

The first mission ever built in Alta California was the 20th mission I visited. Aside from the facade and its claim to being the first mission, there was not much else to it. I did find the flags on display-- American, Spanish, Mexican, and Californian-- to be noteworthy.

San Diego ended my four-day, 20-mission trek down California. I returned home the next day. I would not see the 21st and last mission, Santa Clara, for another seven months.
