San Jacinto Monument, La Porte, Texas which celebrates Texas' independance from Mexico in Battleship Texas is seen in the background on the Houston Ship Channel, Largest Port in the US. I have fond memories of my elementary school field trip here.
Deep in the heart of Texas history lies the Battle of San Jacinto. The San Jacinto Monument and Museum is part of the San Jacinto Battleground State historical complex maintained by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Every year San Jacinto Day.
Located only miles from Palm Springs, San Jacinto tops out at over feet like Mt Baldy. What makes this hike epic is that you get to ride the Palm Springs Tram up feet before you hike from the drop off point to the summit 6 miles away.
