Cuyamaca Lake and Peak

Last Friday, a late-season storm rolled through San Diego and dumped 1.5″ of rain and snow in the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park area. I drove out at the tail end of the storm and hiked up the peak, back down, and then through the area just south of the lake. This brief photo essay catalogs the hike.
