California Sunset - From Cabarillo National Monument and Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA (January 27, 2007)
Cabarillo National Monument
My friend Judy and I were standing along the cliffs of the edge of the Pacific Ocean at Cabarillo National Monument yesterday evening. The sunset was comparatively unimpressive to what was expected, but we still had a very enjoyable time. The adjacent photo of the ocean meeting the cliffs is arguably the best photo on this page! ;)

I snapped this photo at about 4:30 p.m., when a forest ranger informed us that this portion of the park was closed for the day. So we drove a few miles north to the area known as "Sunset Cliffs" near Ocean Beach in San Diego ...

We arrived with the sunset begin to show off some colors, but a thick horizontal line of clouds largely blocked out the orange shades that often come from California sunsets.

Sunset Special thanks to my friend Judy, who drove from the Simi Valley (north of Los Angeles) to San Diego to spend the day with me. We also enjoyed walking along the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier and observing cacti on a front lawn too. ;)
