Because, aviously…

Mount Soledad, located overlooking La Jolla, is home to the National Veterans Memorial and is home to the Suess House, the last home of Dr. Suess, where his wife still lives.

The mountain also features great views of the city and the surrounding areas.

The Memorial is one of a kind, featuring names, pictures, and descriptions on the wall of local veterans, mostly focusing on the Korean Wall.

You follow a long winding path up to the top of the mountain, which has limited free parking at the top, and many bike paths to get to the top as well.

Controversy has surrounded the mountaintop, as it contains a large cross that overlooks the site and city. Since it is a government-run site, it has been said that they shouldn’t mix church and state.
Personally, I didn’t have an issue with it, and just ignored the symbolism while viewing the memorial.
