Gonna be yet another miserable summer.
Seriously? You turned on your air conditioner yesterday? Where do you live again, Suburban_Guy?

Meanwhile, I went for a 3-mile hike east of El Cajon yesterday afternoon and didn't even break a sweat. It was perfect weather to me. Today's another beautiful day -- mid 70s at noon, now edging towards high 60s at 5 p.m. Good sleeping weather, and no AC required. To each their own.

This would be an interesting topic for discussion -- at what temperature do you turn on your AC?

I usually don't feel the need to turn mine on until we've edged past 90 degrees.

That makes sense. With all of the visitors, they're probably going to have to pay someone to clean up after the flowers fade.

Mission Trails yesterday, above the dam. An easy hike! We were actually going somewhere else, but the hillsides caught our eyes. We couldn't believe it--we've never seen that profuse bloom before, after living here for 20 years! So we had to go exploring. And the temperature was indeed perfect.

Last weekend my Miata Club took a cruise in search of wildflowers. We found lots of wildflowers.

Here is one member's pics:

Great thread, everyone. Keep the photos coming....

Pics from my hike up South Fortuna at Mission Trails this past weekend.

From the visitors center


San Diego River was still flowing and you will get wet crossing it.


Black mustard is considered a weed but it still has lots of color


Green hills all around


Plenty of purple along the way




Looking down on the trail below. Not sure if that's an agave or yucca bloom on top of the rock


Towards the top of South Fortuna is where you start seeing the California Poppies

Heads up....alert...there is also a healthy crop of poison ivy (oak) this year. I was looking for a lost golf ball by a riverbed and got it all over me. I may go to the doctor if it doesn't subside by today.
