Where I stayed
San Antonio to Stonewall to Austin, TX
This morning was a slower start to the day than usual, however, that was somewhat predictable. We got up and started heading out to the San Antonio Mission National Historical Park which is comprised of four missions. Mission San Juan, San Jose, Conception, and Espada. They together form the NHP and are on a national mission trail. The missions are very interesting, with relics left and just amazing detail to archeology and architecture. The missions are about 2-3 miles apart each time, along with aquifers, dams and walls as well as the chapels. The chapels are still in current use for masses. All of this is in regards to the Spanish missions that came to the area to try and convert the paganism's that were they believed were taking place. After the missions were completed we headed to the Lyndon B Johnson National Historical Park we took a tour around the ranch and a ranger led tour in the "Texas White House" and tomorrow we are going the LBJ presidential library
