Morro Rock...

...also known as "the Gibralter of the Pacific.

Positioned at the entrance to Morro Bay harbor which in turn leads to the national estuary (upper right), this magestic California Central Coast icon is a 576-foot tall extinct volcanic peak. Chumash and Salinas nationa sacred tribal ceremonies take place yearly atop the rock which hosts a principle nesting site for endangered Peregrine Falcons.
