    Worth the stop on the way to San Diego. No restrooms or services though, for those head to the rest stop a few more miles south. Be sure to stop when you're heading south, no access from 5 north.

    If you're making the drive down the 5 then this is a definite "rest stop" to stretch your legs and take some nice pics.

    Interesting spot to watch military helicopters practice their maneuvers from one side of the freeway to the other.

    The view was just okay...nothing to write home about. You shouldn't feed the birds, but if you do, they come flying to swarm you. Kind of makes for some neat photos, though.
