Looking Up: Mission San Juan Bautista

Up there on the cliff is Mission San Juan Bautista.  I took this photo from the original El Camino Real, which ran from Mission San Diego to Mission Sonoma. If I understood what I read, several feet below where I stood runs the San Andreas Fault. I am amazed that the mission has stayed up all these 200 years.

Do you see what looks like green benches below the fence? I was told that they are remnants of the bleachers for the once-upon-a-time annual San Juan Bautista Rodeo.
