For Halloween 2015, K and I drove out early to Anza Borrego Desert to catch the sunrise, went back west for a 6-mile hike (Iron Mountain), and finished out the day by swimming in the ocean at La Jolla in the evening. It was one of those hot Octobers in SoCal, when the ocean was still that warm!
That shimmering on the desert floor? That’s the Salton Sea.
We hiked our breakfast in. Bacon and eggs on the camp stove! Free Coleman advertising.
As you can tell, the sun got brighter and stronger and increasingly blinding! Time to break from the land of cacti.
From the desert to the mountains to the ocean…in one day! San Diego.
