Original El Camino Real passed through this fort. There's a nice cactus garden with plant labels in front of visitor center. Don't skip the 8 minute intro video, it presents the story of the fort and its place in history.

I have finally been able to see the place. If you can sense spirits, there are more than a few out there. I hope that they get grant or money somehow to cover the ruins. I went on a weekday afternoon to be able to...More
