DSCF0002.JPG (598650 bytes) 2. Picture trying to capture the length of the buildings. I have been told there is only one original pillar still in place. If that's incorrect please let me know.
DSCF0005.JPG (607169 bytes) 3. This shows the style and colors of clothing worn by the mission people. The clothing and colors have different meanings & were worn by certain people or for certain events.
DSCF0006.JPG (611239 bytes) 4. Sorry this one is kind of dark. It is the weaving room. The mission people used to trade items made by weaving for other goods.
DSCF0009.JPG (609009 bytes) 5. Another dark picture, but you can see the bell tower in this shot, and the entrance to the burial site/cemetery.
DSCF0010.JPG (612924 bytes) 6. This is showing the rear of the mission, rear of the bell tower and burial site. I came across many wild animals while walking up the hill to capture this view.
DSCF0011.JPG (171192 bytes) 7. Even the animals know the best places to relax. There are animals present today that were also present in the missions history.
DSCF0013.JPG (174249 bytes) 8. View of bell tower from main parking lot. The mission is beautiful from all angles.
DSCF0015.JPG (162555 bytes) 9. The mission had & still has many animals. Back then they were used for food, leather, wool, trading, etc. Sorry I got the animals backsides. They didn't want to cooperate.

DSCF0017.JPG (636096 bytes) 11. This is of some wall construction. The top portion of the wall is from restoration. The bottom half is original. I think. I will have to do more research on this one.

DSCF0019.JPG (694579 bytes) 13. A shot taken of the fountain at La Purisima Mission. There are benches near to sit and enjoy the fountain and surroundings. It is very peaceful, and relaxing.
