Nine miles south of Tucson lay the beautiful Mission San Xavier del Bac.
While visiting family in Arizona, I have the opportunity to take a short road trip down to the Tucson area and visit one of the oldest missions in the United States. I left early so that I would be able to view the sunrise as it came over the mountains and lit the mission. It was truly breathtaking and very peaceful.
Here you can find more information about the mission.
