아침 저녁으로 날이 서늘한걸 보니 여기 샌디에고에도 겨울(?) 이 슬슬 찾아오나 봅니다. 많은 분들이 요청해 주셔서 11월 말부터 눈산행 스페샬을 준비중인데요. 플로리다에서 살다온 저로서는 생각만 해도 가슴이 두근두근 하네요. 3번 정도 산행을 계획중이고 지금 리스트에 올라온 코스는 대략 아래와 같습니다. 혹시라도 추천하고 싶은 코스가 있으면 덧글로 달아주세요. 눈 산행의 별미는 뭐니뭐니해도 정상에서 먹는 호빵 아니겠습니까!! 아 또 일 커진다
Palomar Mountain State Park
Palomar Mountain is a great place to hike year round. The elevation and amount of rainfall received here gives this one of the few place in San Diego that is able to receive four seasons. It’s not uncommon for snow to leave the highest elevations of this mountain dusted in snow. Palomar State Park has multiple trails to explore from easy to moderate.
Cuyamaca Peak is San Diego’s second tallest peak. It’s also included in the Southern California Six Pack of Peak Challenge list. The trails leading up to the peak are lined with manzanita and pine forest groves. The state park here makes for an excellent winter playground and vantage point to see down onto San Diego County.
At just over 6,000 feet above sea level and 55 miles east of downtown San Diego (about a 1-hour drive), this is one of the most popular places to see winter snow! Mt. Laguna is a great spot for adventure-seekers, and you can cross-country ski, sled, or toboggan in several spots throughout the area. The most popular location is close to Mt. Laguna Lodge, where you can also book reasonably priced accommodations for the night if you feel like getting in a bit more snow time. You can also purchase an Adventure Pass here and check out their Visitor Center for more information on current conditions.
