Cuyamaca Peak

This past weekend I climb Cuyamaca Peak using an old fire road and then came down the conejos trail to Azelea Springs trail and back to the campground where I had parked for day use. Still have lots to process and a story to tell.

There are 2 starting points, the beginning of the fire road or meeting the road at the back of the campsite. This is looking back down the fire road to its starting point.



In 2003 there was a massive wild fire in the area. The Cedar fire was so intense that this area was literally scorched earth. Even today more than 10 years since...the skeletons of hundreds of trees remind of of that fire.





The area has had to be re-planted as there was no chance of it growing back on its own. I'll have more pics of the planting and more devastation in a later thread.

This trail is opposite another hike I have posted about Stonewall Peak



This particular trail climbs to the second highest point in San Diego County.

Re: Cuyamaca Peak

It's a shame what fire can do to our beautiful nature landscapes. Nicely taken and presented.

Re: Cuyamaca Peak

I feel sorry for those trees, but they might make a great silhouette against a night sky.

Re: Cuyamaca Peak

The golden grass foreground and green midground balances the super rich (too?) blue sky in #2. #1 looks overall too dark on my monitor, especially given the sharp, dark shadows and thus expectation to see brightly sunlit elements. I'd reduce saturation and contrast, increase brightness.
