Camping in Cuyamaca

We finally made a family camp this weekend at the Green Valley Campground in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. We had a great time with 8 other families!
* Hiked to the Green Vally falls on the Sweetwater river. These are probably the most accessible falls in the county and are a little-known gem.
* Hiked to the airplane monument. This was a pretty touch hike due to the elevation climb (900' in less than 2 miles) and the very rocky and broken terrain. It was worth it though.
* The rain started early Monday morning and didn't really let up. I was up to make some coffee and breakfast, then everyone packed and heading out. The Green Monster tent held up well except for the windows flaps which blew up. This exposed the screen windows so some rain could sneak in.
* Tried out our new soft car top carrier. It worked great for carrying the tent and other bulky items. A couple of small modifications to the configuration and it will be perfect. It held up nicely in the rain as well.
