Today was a beautiful day in the neighborhood: mid-seventies temperature and sunny skies. The Male and I decided to take the opportunity to head north to Mission San Gabriel. We've been to San Juan Capistrano and Santa Ines, and this one is right here in our back yard, so to speak.
We decided to keep off the freeway, and instead, we headed up on Highway 19, Rosemead Blvd. It goes right by the Whittier Narrows Recreational Area and dam. We'd never seen either before.
We found the Mission easily and parked under a big tree for the shade.
We wandered the grounds, and then went out to the bikes for our lunch, waiting for a wedding to conclude so we could go in the original church.
