Missions of California Trip Itinerary

March 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

For my next photography road trip, I plan to visit the 21 Missions of California. Of course, I've included many other sites along the way. This trip will cover approximately 6,000 miles and will take the better part of a month to complete. In addition to the missions, I'll visit several amazing landscape locations (Mono Lake, Lake Tahoe, Joshua Tree, California coastline), a ghost town, three Presidential Libraries and numerous architectural locations in cities such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Diego. I also hope to have the opportunity to visit family along the way.
