Woodson Mountain 1/2/2011
Happy New Year everyone. This was the first hike of the new year. It was our first time on this mountain as well. We started at Lake Poway at 1000 feet and made our way to the top of the mountain at a little over 2800 feet. This mountain is positioned in the middle of the foothills in San Diego County and has sweeping 360 degree views all around from the top. Even though a storm was slowly coming in we could see probably a good 70 to 100 miles in all directions to the Pacific Ocean, San Diego, Mexico, Laguna Mountains, Cuyamaca Mountains, Palomar Mountains, and Camp Pendleton mountains. Woodson Mountain has some of the largest Granite boulders that I have ever seen in San Diego on and near the summit.
