You gotta love the Old West. I'm 40 miles east of my home, in Jacumba, near the Mexican border, just off Interstate 80. This tower is technically a millionaire's tribute to the workers who labored to carve a road through the impenetrable moonscape that guards the east to west approach into San Diego. In reality, you are looking at a tribute to the glory days of eccentric millionaires. This was built by Bert Vaughan over a five-year span in the 1920s.
This is a view from inside the tower, taken on my iPhone.
An amazing moonscape.
