The trip was postponed to let the destination dry out a bit after rains yesterday. It's a go for tomorrow.
The day started a 8 am as we began our 342 mile journey to visit three sites of the Salinas Pueblo Missions. Each site was a bit different so I will post each on by itself.
The first stop was Abo, 125 miles into our journey. Abo was a thriving community when the Spaniards visited the Salinas Valley in 1581. Franciscans began converting the population in 1622 and by the late 1620's the first church was built. Sometime between 1672 and 1678 the site was abandoned. Here's what remains.
Tomorrow we'll look at the Quarai site.
