Wednesday/ Monterey Bay

Monterey Bay was named after the 5th Count of Monterrey of Spain, in 1602.  The whole bay is a marine sanctuary, and has one of the largest underwater canyons in the world. Singer-songwriter John Denver died at the age of 53 when his experimental aircraft crashed in Monterey Bay in 1997.
