Here's a view from atop Mt. Soledad. It's one of the highest view point within San Diego proper. From here one can see downtown SD to the south, Scripps Ranch to the east, Torrey Pines to the notth and the Pacific Ocean on the west.
Mount Soledad is a great place to get a bird's eye view of La Jolla and all around San Diego. Every night when the sun is setting there are tons of people up here watching the show.
