OLD POINT LOMA
Aug 13, 2009
National Monument, where the (pictured) Old Point Loma Lighthouse is
located is San Diego's only NPS managed site. It is a Plymouth Rock of

multi-agency America is Beautiful pass and take guests visiting me.
The Bayside Trail offers some of the best views of San Diego's
downtown. In the winter months one can try spotting
Gray Whales migrating back north. The Rangers too make the
trip interesting by narrating Cabrillo's story, with props and such.
in all, it makes for an interesting afternoon in fine San
