San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve is a pleasant walk beside a saltwater marsh area, along a trail filled with lush greenery. It is fairly flat until you venture upon Annie’s Canyon. What a delight working through this little slot canyon. It was so cool, more than I expect with a tight squeeze, twists and turns as you went up. Annie’s Canyon was different then other slot canyons I have been to. It was close quarters, just room for one at a time and it went up in elevation. Others slots I have been in where fairly flat, but this had a bit of a climb. The sign said strenuous, but I would not describe it that way. I with describe it as fun.
USS Midway, San Diego, California ‘America Afloat’. To me this represents the best of America. It represents our resolve, dedication, engineering, and fortitude. This is our history. The USS Midway was named after a battle that was the turning point of World War II in the Pacific. The Midway was longest serving carrier, being commissioned around the end of World War II, and operated during the Korean War, Vietnam and into the 90’s and the Gulf War.
