So here it is a day after the Torrey Pines at the beach excursion and were headed for the opposite extreme. The snowy mountains in East San Diego county. This was mostly a driving tour with a small hike included in the afternoon. We drove I8 to 79 N through the Cuyamaca mountains, through Julian, then explored the Volcan mountains and the upper reaches of Santa Ysabel Creek, then we went down in elevation and hiked the Inaja trail near the upper reaches of the San Diego River. Nice!!
