Long Description:

The water body is the Monterey Bay, the location is five minutes from Monterey Airport, but the city you see is not Monterey but its neighbor Seaside. Not much of a skyline since there is only one building more than two stories high, sticking out like a sore thumb: Seaside’s only landmark, the Embassy Suite Hotel.

The picture was taken from a parking lot right before the Jacks Peak Park gate. The elevation is 606 ft. Jacks Peak is still a little bit higher but the park charges $5 and the view is obstructed by trees. So, this is most likely the best free view of the Monterey Bay.

note: the road is basically the access road to Jacks Peak Park and is open only from 9-5.
