Hiking: Garnet Peak

One of my most favorite hikes in San Diego is Garnet Peak in Mt. Laguna. It’s about 6,000 ft. above sea level.  It’s an easy 3 to 4 miles hike from where we started. I know there’s another start area closer to the hike but we chose the longer trail. garnet1

It’s windy and sunny at the same time. Mich looked like she’s sporting a new hairdo. :) We had spectacular views of Laguna Mountains and Anza Borrego desert.

We left the selfie pod at home so he improvised one. We’re the only ones on the summit.

This is a highly recommended hike but be sure to check out the weather especially wind advisory.
