I was on a solo mission this past Saturday. I decided to drive 60 miles East of San Diego to the Sunrise Highway…..which eventually leads to Mt. Laguna. I ended up stopping off the side of the road so many times to check the amazing views, etc. It was well worth the ten dollars that I spent on gas to get out there. The drive made for a great afternoon.

The area of land in which Mt. Laguna sits is the Cleveland National Forest; the most southern National Park in California. If you are ever in the area, there are plenty of hiking trails, biking trails, and campgrounds.

Flower Power.

This is what happens when rain doesn’t exist…unfortunately fires do.

The good old Sunrise Highway…….full of open roads.

On the way back to San Diego I stopped in Julian, CA. They are famous for their apple pies. The town itself is very old and encompases many run down, but interesting buildings/shacks/homes.
