Merry Christmas from the Arizona Desert

and have a wonderful holiday season!!! we took a trip last weekend to see some more of Arizona, and these pics are just the start...
"The White Dove of the Desert"
San Xavier Del Bac Mission, just 9 miles south of Tucson on the Tohono O'odham Indian reservation-it was completed in the year 1797.
The interior of the mission- it is still a working Catholic church, but also open to the public. There are well over 50 (?) statues and carvings of saints, angels, and apostles inside, and wonderful folk art paintings on most of the flat surfaces.
Our Lady of Guadalupe a view of the exterior gardens
