Beautiful location in Santa Isabel Valley. You can almost imagine what is felt like to be in this quiet space. More and more native peoples from the area are staying involved and the mission encourages their parts of the narrative.

Visited the lovely chapel. Clean restrooms and picnic tables. The free, one room museum really needs a good clean up though
