The Mount Soledad Cross- La Jolla, California

The Mount Soledad Cross- La Jolla, California

I just conducted a La Jolla home inspection not far from the Mount Soledad cross and War Memorial. After finishing the inspection, I took a few moments to stop at the site and take in the beautiful vistas of the surrounding terrain. It is one of my favorite places to visit in San Diego!

Mount Soledad Cross

 

Mount Soledad stands at 822 feet above sea level. From the top, there is a stunning 360-degree view: La Jolla shores, Scripps pier, Mission Bay, the Coronado bridge, the skyline of downtown San Diego, and the northern and southern shorelines can all be seen. And, of course, there is always an abundance of fresh ocean air and drenching California sunshine!

Mount Soledad Cross

 

Atop Mt. Soledad sits the 43-foot concrete Mount Soledad cross and War Veteran's Memorial. It was erected in the early 1950's in memory of our Korea War veterans. The site has since evolved into a standing testament to all American war heroes and the unending commit of our military to defend freedom. There are approximately 2700 plaques at the Memorial’s base, featuring photos and name engravings of war veterans.
