Sunset at Cuyamaca

Cuyamaca Peak Night Hike

I had so much fun during the night photo outing to Mount Laguna, I wanted to get out again for more night photos. Alex and I had hiked Cuyamaca Peak a couple of times before already so we drove out in the late afternoon on Friday. Except for the steepness of the paved fire road that leads up there it is not a difficult hike, but traffic was worse than we had expected so we were just a little bit too late to catch the sunset from the peak.

Palomar Mountain Loop Hike

Alex and I went for a Saturday morning loop hike at Palomar Mountain. We hiked at Palomar Mountain many times but rarely do so in the actual State Park because dogs aren’t allowed on the trails there. This time we left Toni at home to check out a loop hike in Palomar Mountain State Park that Alex had found through Scott Turner, the co-author of “Afoot & Afield in San Diego County”.

Hills with wildflowers at the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve in Riverside County, California.

Flower Hills

Two photos from a docent-led hike at the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve, near Fallbrook. These hills looked incredibly beautiful but on the overcast morning before the fog lifted, they looked a bit dull. I developed these photos with a high-key look to bring out the beauty. I hope I succeeded! 🙂
