While here, I vow to really get to know San Diego! That means you will get to know SD too. I'm going to do something fun outside everyday. I mean, why not? This weather is so motivating. For me, if it is sunny, I want to be outside. period.
Ernesto's dad wanted to do a hike Sunday. In all the years I have been coming here, I have never been to the Mission Trails Regional Park.
Its located about 8 miles NE of downtown. The park covers 5800 acres and has over 40 miles of biking and hiking trails. The trail we hiked is called Cowles Mountain Trail, and as the name indicates, you are climbing a mountain. As you can see below, the trail is dirt with huge rocks along the way.
Although it was only 1.25 miles up, it was a great workout! It took me 28 minutes to reach the top and I was walking fast. The view was awesome! You could see all of San Diego. The lake in the picture is Lake Murray, which is part of the park. Id like to go there too. There is a 3 mile trail loop. You can also fish and boat.
