I was on a mission: to see the closest thing to a Spanish mission in the Inland Empire. Not Riverside's Mission Inn, which is a 20th century hotel built with elements of mission-style architecture. If hotel visitors expressed the belief that they were in a real California mission, owner Frank Miller, who knew the value of marketing and harmless fakery, didn't go out of his way to correct them. No, I was in Redlands, heading toward the Asistencia de San Bernardino. The Asistencia wasn't a mission either.
