Torrey Pines

This past weekend I was out in San Diego for LBK and Emily’s wedding.  Amid all of the pre-wedding hustle we found time for good old fashioned outdoors fun.  LBK brought us out to Torrey Pines State Reserve, where we went for a great walk through the hills of SoCal which abut the coastline in so many places.  This is another great hike if your pressed for time, but are in the mood for some great scenery.  And since San Diego has virtually the best weather possible, you can just show up whenever you feel like it and enjoy the scene.

We made a quick loop on the Guy Fleming Trail, but a quick pan to the south reveals a number of other enticing routes for future exploration.  There are several look out areas along the Fleming Trail which make good places for pit stops and the obligatory imbibing of local micro-brew.  Here’s a few of the highlights:

Some interesting sandstone formations.
