cee’s fun foto: cream to light brown

tucson, arizona – after attending an ordination, my friends and i took a short drive outside the city to the mission san xavier del bac, known as the white dove of the desert.  it is in the center of an old-indian settlement along the banks of the san santa cruz river.

the church is simply magnificent.  glorious and opulent.  elegant exterior and ornately decorated entrance. baroque interior, rich and lavish. statues, frescoes, carvings and paintings all in dazzling colors.  the main altar is beautiful and exquisite.
