After playing at the park, we drove through downtown a little. Then we went out from town about 3 miles to a place called Coronado Heights. It's the hill in the distance with the castle on it. Of course wouldn't you know, I forgot the camera so I had to resort to the one on my phone with no zoom capability!
A statue erected close to the beginning of the trip up the hill. It said "Coronado, 1541" on it. It had the date 1988 on the other side though. We are assuming that is when it was erected.
A little better view of the castle.
One of the lookout points complete with picnic table and chimineah.
There were all sorts of etchings in the sandstone rocks. This one caught our eye as funny!
Here are my favorite people getting ready to make the trek to the top of the castle by way of the staircase to the left (their right).
Here is the inside of the first floor complete with cool wooden beams and more picnic tables for entertaining.
Here we are at the top! At this point Jesstine just wanted to run around.
View from the top.
A little chimineah outside and a little to the west of the castle.
The stone gates at the entrance.
Getting ready to eat her McDonald's on the trip home. (Note to Kara and Johnna: These are the two princesses she chose for the car trip!)
