Photographer's Note

This large statue of Father Serra (he established Catholic missions through out California) overlooks highway 280. 280 is considered by many the prettiest highway in America. This statue is in a rest stop for travelers. This rest stop has been turned from a place of crime and ugliness to a peaceful and beautiful place by the kind acts of a single man. The statue I think is 25 feet in height.
The full history of this place can be found here
