|Les & I squeezing in a run before nightfall up trailhead for Mt Boney|
|Barely made it back to the car before complete darkness. Fall-time darkness sneaks up quick and it's pitch black in these canyons. |
Always carry a headlamp!
|Views of the Santa Monica mountains from the peak of a run I went on with Les from his workplace in Newbury Park. |
An escape from suburbia just like that!
|At the same peak, the views to the southwest shows the flatlands to the ocean waters|
BERNARDO SUMMIT TRAIL
First time hike up Bernardo Summit in San Diego County when I was staying in Escondido. Easy access to park to get to the trailhead, then a quick couple km and 500' elevation gain.
|I discovered the Bernardo Summit Trail on my MTB ride around Lake Hodges. Saw the sign and had to find out where it lead to... an awesome ride-able rocky technical trail to the peak!|
|Enjoying the sunset views from the peak of Bernardo Summit, after an earlier road ride through those same hills|
|The views to the west where the ocean lingers only 30 km away|
|Looking to bump into my hiking partner on my way down. |
I thought it was Paul hoo-ing at me!
