Yes, but it was Discover Baja's photo and flyer for the show. You can see more Mulegé mission photos on my page www.vivabaja.com/bajamissions and in my new book... at www.oldmissions.com

Here are a few we took last time on the mission grounds:

Thanks, it is too far for a one hour show, I understand! Do you already have the book? I will sign it when I see you again.

The PowerPoint (slide) show is this Thursday, 7 pm to 8 pm, Liberty Station. There are still available seats as of today, so RSVP if you would like to come. I have added photos that I took at Mission San Fernando two days ago to the presentation.
Both books will be available for sale and signing, and are discounted to offset the small seating charge Discover Baja is collecting for room rental.

I look forward to meeting you. Members or non-members of Discover Baja are welcome...

R.S.V.P. to: ask@discoverbaja.com or 800-727-2252.

Thank you for your interest and coming to the show. Discover Baja said it was well received and that was the impression I also got from those who stayed after to ask questions and discuss Baja travel. I counted about 50 and every seat was filled with a couple folks standing, too. Thank you to Max Kurillo for operating the projector and to the folks of Discover Baja Travel Club for hosting the event!

With my phone, I took a couple photos a few minutes before the start... traffic was heavy, so we began a few minutes after 7 so everyone who RSVP'd could be there and we had room for the few folks that showed up hoping to get in without a reservation. Iced water bottles and cookies were served. Discover Baja sold both the new 2016 book Baja California Land of Missions and the Old Missions of Baja & Alta California book from 2012. To get your copies if you didn't last night: https://squareup.com/store/discover-baja/ or from the publisher www.oldmissions.com (2012 book NLA from the publisher).
THANK YOU... It was fun for me to meet and chat with you all!

I'm glad there was a good turnout. What were some of the question they asked. What mission was asked about the most.

Questions about the lost mission site at Las Animas, about visitas, about how many missions there were, about how to find Calamajué from Coco's Corner and can an FJ Cruiser (lifted) get to Mission Santa María are the ones that come to mind.
One of my slides were of three Jesuits who were key to the missions getting established (Kino, Salvatierra, Ugarte) and the image of Kino (I found on the Internet) shows him in perhaps incorrect dress, one mission fan there noticed.
The Jesuits wore black robes... so I think he is correct and this may not be Kino's true image. The only other Kino image I found when making the PowerPoint slide program was of a statue of him on a burro in Mexico.

There is no complete list of visitas, so I can't name them in all. I may do a writing project about visitas to list all that I can find named for the various missions.

There are a few missions I have not been on the ground at. Max Kurillo or other close mission experts I have been working with have, however.
The list from north to south of missions I have not personally 'touched' would be: San Pedro Martir, Guadalupe (del Sur), La Purísima, San Luis Gonzaga, and Los Dolores. 5 of the 27. I have not been to Comondú since 1966, as well. Todos Santos we just drove past without stopping (I had a Nomad guide in my truck directing me through that day).
