I love visiting the country’s National Parks and Monuments and this one was a particular favorite of mine. Pictured is the limestone statue at Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego, California.

Happy new year everyone! I spent the last days of 2012 and the New Year’s holiday in San Diego, CA. This week’s photo was shot during my visit to the Zoo’s Safari Park (separate from the regular San Diego Zoo). This baby Gorilla’s name is Monroe and he put on a great show for everyone.
