St Francisville, LA ~ These photos were taken in 2010, with one of my first cameras, so the quality is not that great.This hotel is known to be extremely haunted. We had a few spooky events occur while staying here, but nothing too terrifying. The food and service was fantastic, and the scenery is beautiful. I’d recommend their restaurant if you are in the area, but I think that one night stay was enough for me.
Tuscon, AZ ~ San Xavier is a Spanish Colonial Catholic mission founded by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona. The interior is filled with beautiful paintings, murals, and statues. The architectural design throughout is breathtaking!
