Mount Soledad 6/28/2021
Cool and overcast morning with negative tide. What else we need.
Some will go around but we are continuing on the beach.
This is usually under water.
So we can explore caves.
Out of one cave.
And into another.
Houses above us have no easy way to get to the beach.
Broken ocean bottom.
Pelicans like it.
It gets rougher.
There is a duck, we must be on right trail.
Rob wants to be first to climb the rope up.
After pulling Rob up than rest of the group is getting up.
Is Rob going to use that swing chair?
Is there some food to steal for my babies?
Our complete group.
Time to hit some backyards.
Is anybody trespassing? Not us.
Uphill open trail.
At the overlook. Where is John?
Trail via overgrown vegetation.
We made it up.
No gate will stop us.
Now we have to survive highway 52.
After-hike is at Jimís place. Where is John?
Soon after Larry and Leslie left John shows up. We are all accounted for.
