You know you want a set of those bar stools pictured above.
What about some of these other treasures we found. Anyone for a giant metal cactus? Anyone? What about a longhorn steer?
After shopping the morning away we went in search of something a bit more cultural.
We followed the El Paso Mission Trail. The mission trail consists of three missions. We managed to make it to two of them. The first was San Elizario Presidio Chapel.

The interior is very ornate and there was so much to look at from the stained glass windows to the columns and arches.
We stopped at a little taco shop for lunch then moved on to Socorro Mission (1843).

The inside of this mission was very rustic and the age was apparent but in the best possible way.
I loved the carved wood trim along the walls and the balcony.
I never get tired of seeing parts of America's history.
