Desert View Tower in Jacumba

I was sick with the flu for a week and the first few days I slept almost entirely.  I am much better now, but behind some postings.  This is still from our trip to San Diego in the beginning of the month.  About an hour into the California border there is a nice little stop; Desert Tower in a place called Jacumba.  Many years ago I stopped there on the way to San Diego and remember how peaceful and mysterious it was.  

There was snow on the hills as we approached it.

And then just as we parked and got out of the car, a dog came by and wanted to play with the kids.  He wanted to catch snow balls.  

And inside the rocks there were carved animals.  Buffaloes, and snakes, and turtles and lizzards and other monsters.  See, mysterious I tell you.

And inside the tower lots of cool things, like these masks.

And outside was this.  Not sure what it is but it looked cheerful and happy.

And the view from top.
