San Antonio Missions
A five day project took me to Texas., where it was cooler than I expected (or wanted). But luckily the one day that I had some time to roam around was the one day that it was warm and sunny.
I’ve been to San Antonio before and discovered that one of the most interesting things to see are the historic Spanish Missions that are south of the city. Everyone knows the Alamo, but many visitors don’t know about the other beautiful locations. They are all a short drive from each other, and are in various states of decay and preservation. This first one is Mission Espada.
There is also a bike and hiking path that connects them all. The first time I ran across the Missions was years ago. It was quite unexpected and I didn’t have the right camera gear with me at the time (shocking, I know!) This time I was prepared and brought along a wide angle zoom to help me take it all in. The next few photos are from the amazing Mission San José, known as the “Queen of the Missions”
The last images are from Mission Concepción. It’s incredible to think that some of these structures are older than the United States. I hope you try to visit the Missions if you’re in the area. Sure the riverwalk in San Antonio is nice, but I prefer the adventures that are just a little off the beaten path. And bring a wide angle lens with you. You might need it.
