The Cabrillo National Monument features some of the best views in all of San Diego. It is located on the Point Loma peninsula and features a large statue, lighthouse, hiking and beautiful scenery. Don’t miss these photos!
This week’s photo is of the old Point Loma lighthouse that sits atop 400-foot high cliffs within the Cabrillo National Monument and is a short drive from downtown San Diego, California.
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. Overlooking the city skyline and harbor from the Point Loma peninsula it was quite beautiful and worth the visit.
The first stop on my New Mexico road trip was the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. The main attractions here are the well preserved dwellings perched high up the side of a cliff; inside natural caves once lived in by the native Mogollon peoples over 700 years ago.
The spectacular White Sands National Monument located in Southern New Mexico. It’s late evening and the white sand dunes are simply breathtaking! I visited during my week-long road trip through the state in September 2012; unlike anything I’ve ever seen and this was easily the highlight of my trip. The area covers more than 275 square miles and is the biggest of it’s kind in the world.
After I visited the world famous Antelope Canyon a few years ago I instantly fell in love with the beauty and unique experience of being inside slot canyons. They are just one of nature’s creations that draw you in and get your imagination flowing. Check out my pictures from a day-hike into the lesser known and breathtaking Willis Creek slot canyon in Southern Utah.
