Nearly 250 years ago Spanish missionaries established 21 missions among Native Americans along the California coast. The missions gave their names to many of California’s cities – San Francisco, San Diego, and many others. Guidebook author and trekker Sanford “Sandy” Brown will describe how he explored the missions by bike this summer while documenting his 800-mile journey on YouTube.
