Cabrillo National Monument Centennial

December 2013


The Cabrillo National Monument had its 100th birthday this year. It was one of the first National Parks created in the US, as it was established 1913.  The Centennial celebration were postponed due to government shutdown earlier this autumn, but continued now in December.

Walked around nature paths and checked tide pools. Had an opportunity to visit inside the old Lighthouse, even at the very top on the tower.  Probably the highest point in Point Loma, there's a good view over the city of San Diego. On a clear day one could have seen snowy mountain tops in the east.

The Army had its annual celebration there, too. People were in WWII costumes, looked pretty authentic to me.

It's a nice place to visit, though quite small. Soon, gray whales arrive and it'll be one more reason to visit there again.
