It's hard to imagine that seeing row upon row of white crosses on graves would have an emotional impact on you, but it surely does. Park and walk around and look at the dates on the markers - some go way back. At sunset, this place is even more beautiful with the sun peeking through the trees. Be sure to go on to the Cabrillo National Monument just down the road. The view looking back at the city from the left side of the road if amazing.
