Sunrise on Sunrise Highway

We were planning to pedal the Sunrise Highway in San Diego at Sunrise. As we turned the corner to the look out the wind started to whip.

As I got out of the truck I could barely stand without bracing myself. There were 15 to 30mph gusts coming off the desert floor 5,500ft below us.

After a few pictures we decided to head down the hill into the valley floor which is at 3900ft elevation. And not quit that windy.

For a couple of hours we pedaled thru cedars, pine, oaks, and chaparral. We came across a set of mountain lion tracks. We didn’t linger long in that spot.

It was mostly a picture perfect morning.
