Mission San Diego de Alcala was the first misson built in California along the El Camino Real.  It was founded in 1769 and is still an active Catholic parish.

I had to do some exposure tweaks in Photoshop Elements on this one as I forgot to adjust my ISO setting when I left taking shots in a shadowy area.  Luckily I had the presence of mind to at least have the camera set on “P” mode so it optimized the shot as much as possible.
