Arizona Road Trip: San Xavair
This is my last stop on this road trip before making my way to Phoenix. This is Mission San Xavier del Bac, just south of Tucson. It is nicknamed “The White Dove of the Desert”. This beautiful church is still very active and serving the Tohono O’odham Reservation. It is a dramatic site sitting in this desert location and those equally dramatic monsoon clouds make it stand out even more.
I am back in Phoenix from my vacation in Italy and I'll start posting regular posts on June 1st for theme day. Thank you to all of you who followed my Arizona Road Trip while I was away. Once I get the photos from the Italy trip downloaded and edited, I'm sure I'll find a few to show you. I had a wonderful time visiting a beautiful and historic country.
