Junípero Serra Cross

The cross, dedicated to Junípero Serra over 100 years ago, at the summit of Mt Rubidoux.
Also, in 1909 Theodore Roosevelt suggested holding an Easter sunrise service right here at the summit of the mountain which still takes place to this day.
See I can add short history lessons too.

History time.
"...Originally the park was named Huntington Park, but was changed to the Frank A. Miller Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park after the heirs of Frank Miller donated the property to the city in 1955. On December 13, 1925 the Testimonial Peace Tower, devoted to peace, was dedicated to Miller. The bridge is a replica of a noted bridge in Alcantara, Spain." -wikipedia

Hiked to the top of Mt Rubidoux today since I didn't make it all the way up last time due to wind and time. Yeah, I can say I hiked to the top of a mountain. Anyway 3 shots in 1, cant really tell aside from the green grass. Its not perfect by any means but its practice.
