It is a shame that each mission does not have its own album. It would have made finding stuff very easy.

The group page now has 20 Baja missions featured... each one has an 'album' of photos if I am understanding the term. I am happy to create new ways to feature these historic artifacts. Feel free to let me know how to best do that.

Edit: Willy, the albums for each mission are in this Group page... Once you join, it will be easy to see when a new album of mission photos is added!
Here is the link (you posted to it shortly after I created it asking for separate albums for each mission). 20 missions posted so far, some with more than one location, so each location has an album: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1685520784824763/

See my post this morning Willy/Richard... I will continue to finish posting the mission photos and data as I have been as there are 20 of the 27 already done. Once that is over (and they are all bumped up now, too), I will make ALBUMS as you suggest for each mission.

I did look at your page, and what I see are Photos on the left... and not Albums, unless you click on Photos, then again click... with a choice of Photos (again), Albums, Videos. Clicking Albums here shows the albums.

Too bad the Albums or a list of Albums cannot appear on the Facebook main page along that left side... or can it?

Mission Santo Tomás photos and a brief bit of history added to the Group Discussion: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1685520784824763/

Did you know that Santo Tomás was moved twice and until 2012 you could see evidence at the three sites?

The second site was destroyed by farming in 2012 (my photos there in 2009 showed that despite planting and irrigation, peppers won't grow on adobe soil... that had to be removed. They probably didn't know (or care) it was a Spanish mission from 1794 to 1799.

The first site (1791-1794), by the camp and picnic area 4 miles west of the highway, has been fenced off and closed, I discovered in 2017. I last visited it in 2011.

The final site (1799-1849) is vanishing, just some bit of wall, outside of the north opening of the El Palomar campground.
