Tumacamori Mission 27304

Taking a break from working on my book, I decided to head about 40 miles south of my house to photograph the Mission at Tumacacori with my new sweekstakes lens. First estabilshed in the 1690's by Jesuit Eusebio Kino, the adobe structure seen here was started to be constructed around 1800. Lack of funds caused construction delays until the mid-1820s. After the Mexican-American War, numerous Apache raids and the harsh winter of 1848, the site was abandoned. The bell tower was never completed.
