The Mission Graveyard

Outside the mission, there's an incredible graveyard. (Also--this mission is the setting of Vertigo!)

It was raining for our visit, which was annoying. but the perfect mood. (There was a whole bush full of Birds of Paradise!)

Francisco's picture.

Ilana: notice how many different fonts there are on just one gravestone!

There are so many flowers in California in December--it's wonderful.

Finally catching up on your blog. Just a factual note (the photos of this mission are so pretty). This isn't the Mission in Vertigo where the final scene's take place -- that's San Juan Baptista. Only the graveyard of Mission Dolores is used in Vertigo.

Oh--interesting! I was solely going off of the bobblehead Hitchcocks that were for sale in the gift store:)
