Weekend Activites

  • Finally cleared out some junk with a trip to the dump
  • Hiked Del Dios Preserve - since it is really a road not a trail, it not a great track, although some of the views are spectacular
  • Visited Balboa Park on a sprinkly day - viewed the Tehachapi layout at the San Diego Model Railroad Museum; first time visit to the Japanese Friendship Garden; caught the organ concert for the first time as well; went to the American Visions exhibit at the Museum of Art.

Weekend Hike


The family went on a nice Sunday hike at Hellhole Canyon County Preserve east of Valley Center.  The weather was perfect.  I can see how this hike would be miserable in the heat since there is very little cover.  We did one of the lower loops but I want to come back and do the high loop.
On the trail.

  • Bengt went to FFL scrimmage at Rock Academy to meet up with his team to start on their robot prototype.  We walked around Liberty Station while the kids did their work and visited the NTC Commander's museum.
  • Family hike at Pipe (haven't been there in a long time)
  • Checked out the Swami's tidepools (haven't been there in a long time as well)
