La Purisima Mission State Park is located between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara. Each mission in California was located one travel day apart by horse along El Camino Real (the Royal Highway).  La Purisima Mission was built in 1787, and was reconstructed after an earthquake in 1812.  It is well known for its two chapels and living history demonstrations throughout the year.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
