Maybe Palomar Mountain

Here it is Wednesday again, May 20, and I am wondering . . . what will my training hike be this coming Saturday, May 23? Last week Southern California had a hard rain on Friday so my Saturday plans changed many times. I ended up walking the El Cajon Mountain trail, 12 – 14 miles by myself.

I have no hiking partners for this coming Saturday, so “maybe” I will do something different, very different for me. I am going to join a “” group and hike on Palomar Mountain. Other than a short hike years and years ago, I really haven’t hiked on the Palomar Mountain hiking trails. I have signed up, I have RSVP’d, I have directions, so maybe I will find the meeting place and join them and maybe I will be able to keep up with them. I will let you know . . .

My Monday through Friday training is going well. I have a gym work out three to four days a week; and I walk for one hour after work three to four times a week almost always including a steep hill, usually the service road up Cowles Mountain. I have added to my training walking up Cowles Mountain from the main trail off Golfcrest. This trail requires me to step high up over stairs and rocks which I have been told is good training for Half Dome. I have been doing this twice a week, usually early Sunday and Wednesday mornings, before it gets too crowded.

We’ll see how it goes . . .
