Arizona Road Trip: Tumacacori
My trip would not be complete without a stop at one of my favorite National Historic sites. This is the Tumacacori Mission. It is one of the chain of missions founded by Father Kino that run from inside Mexico all the way to northern California. Many of these missions are still actively operating as churches but, the condition of this one keeps it more of a historic site than an active church. However, services are still performed here on special occasions.
The photo above was taken in an area behind the mission and is one of my all-time favorite photos. In fact, I’ve sold several copies of this one and have one hanging in my home.
