Santa Barbara Mission Indians



We are in Santa Barbara and went to the botanical garden. A very simple yet old garden - I found out that mission Indians had built a view lookout.

I never saw any dam.
I never saw running water, just a small pond further downstream.

interesting that there are no spaces in between the photos.

I loaded them as attachments as they do not show when I insert BBC link.

But I got photos to load :bounce:

The Old Mission Church and Seminary is close by. We used to play frisbee on the lawn across the road. The Botanical gardens and whole area was/is very wooded and beautiful. The Indians prospered in the area many years before the Spanish arrived. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1971. Late Sixties and Love was in the air! Peace. Tio :cool:

The 31st California mission (10th in Alta California), founded in 1786. Santa Barbara is the only mission continually operated by the Franciscans since its founding.
