The San Jose Mercury newspaper was fascinated with my mission walk, so they asked me to contribute an article to a section they titled The Good Life, telling their readers about my trek. San Jose is home to one of the 21 California missions. It is one of the nicest churches/museums along the 800-mile route.
Editor extraordinaire, Chris Jennewein, of the award winning website Times of San Diego, was kind enough to let me share my mission walk story with his readers. As you’ll see from a comment left by one of the readers, the subject of the missions and how they came to fruition is a controversial topic. http://timesofsandiego.com/opinion/2015/03/20/a-san-diegans-year-long-800-mile-trek-on-el-camino-real/
