A San Antonio Hiking/Biking Pilgrimage

A Texas-sized Pilgrimage
Liguorian - February, 2016
Was so happy to see this article in Liguorian!  And, thanks to my wonderful husband for taking all the photos!!!  Chad and I hope to trek this pilgrimage path soon (see blog here) ... this time without lots of note-taking and going back and forth to get some just-so shots of the 8 different churches!  More of a slow-paced retreat/pilgrimage this time!

It's a little bit like Where's Waldo, but if you look, you can find a number of scallop/cockle shell designs throughout the five San Antonio Missions - a fun parallel to the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain.  Here are just three ...
