It frightens me to see how Vista has changed in the past 4 decades. It went from a residential rural area of wide open spaces and canyons - to a built up master planned community in just 25 years. Population has probably tripled. Albert & Alice grew up here, and both went to Palomar College (nearby in San Marcos), with me, DanaMite. Way back in the 1990's.
