A view of the geodesic dome gymnasium next to the swimming pool at Palomar College. It  looks like a scene from a mid-century spa hotel that could have existed back in the 50's in Palm Springs or Desert Hot Springs.  Either that, or a giant space ship landed on campus. Does anyone remember the Sands Hotel that used to be by the 163 right near Clairemont Mesa Blvd.? It wasn't a geodesic style dome, but it was a big cement dome that was from the same era. Architectural domes are really interesting and we don't have enought of them in San Diego.
