Perfect day for this hike with cloudy and cool conditions. The summit was enshrouded in clouds so there was no view at all from the top. Nice new summit sign, courtesy of Alvera Podiatry. Old summit sign appears discarded and is just leaning, uprooted, against the highest rock on the peak. Be sure to stop by the produce stand near the end of the hike for good, locally grown tangelos, grapefruit, oranges, and Persian limes. Sage bundles, too. Pay by Venmo (info is provided), or good old cash in an honor-system dropbox.
This hike completes my San Diego 6POP Challenge!
