Amazing ViewGreat for StargazingPerfect Night Photography SpotLow Light Pollution
This is a great stop when passing through the Anza Borrego Desert. The drive is very scenic, and passes through Sunrise Highway. Once you turn off the road, it's a very short drive up the hill where you will find a large spot to leave your car. There is a service gate that you can't drive through, but its a very short walk to the antennas. Once you're up there, enjoy the views and break out your camera equipment. This is a great spot with very minimal light pollution.
If you're making the trip out here, be sure to stop by Julian Pie Co for a slice of apple pie!
- Warm clothes (it can get REALLY windy up there)
