I hiked Cowles Mountain the other day and we climbed just shy of 1000 feet!
We’re beginning to do more challenging hikes that change in elevation to train for Machu Picchu.
I did very well. Ended up with some back pain but overall came out of it alright.
The hike is very nice. A little desert-y for me but still very pretty.
The views (although not on the day we went) are magnificent. On a clear day you could probably see all of San Diego.
Below are some images from the hike….enjoy!
