117 – Guy Fleming Trail, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve

Details, details, details! Sharing the Guy Fleming Trail with Jerre and Newt, this hike at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve seemed all about the details. From early Spring wildflowers, a perigren falcon, a roadrunner, squirrels, and, don’t forget, the beautiful ocean views, this hike was full of joyful details.

115 – Hellhole Canyon, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

This was a 5-1/2 mile in and back trail through Hellhole Canyon to the lovely Maidenhair Falls. Including such happenings as being attacked by a jumping jolla cactus, passing through a palm oasis and climbing over giant boulders in order to reach the lovely Maidenhair Falls, this was one very spectacular hike!

114 – San Diego Zoo Safari Park

If you find yourself visiting the San Diego/Escondido area, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is definitely worth a visit. Covering miles and miles of trail, we spent nearly an entire day there as we explored the animal area and gardens.

I generally find it very sad to see caged animals in a park, but even I was impressed with the lifestyle the animals have at this particular facility. Go here – http://www.sdzsafaripark.org/ – for more information on the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
