Episode 59 Cahuilla Mountain Day Hike
May 22, 2010
This episode is about a day hike to the summit of Cahuilla Mountain in inland Riverside County California. John and I check out the land of Ramona and Allessandro made famous in Helen Hunt Jackson’s western novel and source of the famous Ramona Pageant. We also overlook the historic Juan Bautista De Anza Trail.
Along the way we meet Jose Murillo’s California Conservation Corp work crew and talk to Jose about the trail work he’s been doing over the past year. This hike was a nice surprise as we hike up to two summits and discover a picturesque valley in mid spring.
I shot some High Definition video along the way, click on the link below to watch it
