Response to Oh, how very interesting, Jabs!
of the mission, tho it does not look as pristine nowadays a bit run down really-its owned by the state and they're broke lo so the adobe daubing is flaking and peeling, exposing the adobe brick and the grounds are unkempt and overgrown, much like the English Manor Houses where the owners have no funds for upkeep:-)
If you look at the pix: to the right of the bell tower, the grounds extend about 50 feet or so and the suddenly drop a distance of a good 35 feet down wit a fairly level 30 or so feet and then dropping another 50 feet or so to the valley floor, which is as flat as a pancake for about 15 miles until it reaches the foothills of the Sierras. Quite interesting to see!
