It’s a little side trip on the Journey to the Stars Kindle e-book, but it’s something not to be missed.
The little town of Pala, hidden across the street from the towering Pala Casino along Pala Road on the way to Mt. Palomar is much more of a traditional Mexican-Indian town than it is a spot in Southern California, with a very peaceful and spiritual feel.
“Mission Pala is still in active service and is the only Mission to have remained in continuous service as was originally established ministering a native population,” according to the Mission’s website.
The small plaza is usually alive with families and children, as one side is the local community center and daycare. Across the street is a small store that has great Mexican food on the menu.
Don’t miss it.
