San Xavier Mission

dsc_2326cThe kids an I went on a short trip just down the road to San Xavier, a mission church built in 1797. We took a tour (by donation only) with a docent who told us all about the church, from the founding saints to the methods of construction.
According to their website, San Xavier is a National Historic dsc_2348cLandmark, founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church’s interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 18th Century space. The church retains its original purpose of ministering to the religious needs of its parishioners.
If you are interested in taking a tour, the details can be found here.

Tucson Light Parade

Whoa! It’s seriously been since September since I last posted? My goodness! Being a teacher has really changed my day-to-day life, but in an awesome way! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Here are a few photos I took at a light parade in Tucson, AZ last weekend. Merry Christmas to you all!dsc_1512c dsc_1538c dsc_1540c

96 Ranch

I’m still going through my photos from last weekend’s photo walk. There are more to come, including my first Milky Way photos! In the meantime, I’m having a hard time deciding which of these I like better. I think in the end, I like them both for different reasons. Do you have a preference?
