San Diego Cache Events in West and Southwest Posted March 14, 2006 Is anybody thinking of sledding and caching today?! ........too late we just got back! Julian looks like it got about a foot of snow! It was worth the drive because we don't get to see the white stuff too often! We even found one cache! Woo Hoo! We went up to Palomar today - besides not having any of the caches in the GPSr, we weren't really in the mood for excavation caching . It was gorgeous though - there were still piles of snow up in the trees (although plenty found its way down onto our heads). And relatively quiet - great sledding. We brought a load of snow back with us but it didn't last long! Took lots of video and only two stills: Looks like fun. Were you in the main park? How crowded was it? Hindsight says we should have gone there.....next time.... Anyhow, it is supposed to rain there on Saturday too, but if it doesn't........ We went to the area right across the street from Mother's (after first heading down to the north park and then over to the observatory). The best sledding was right there. It wasn't crowded at all - there might have been a dozen other people there - we could pick from many spots to sled down (some rather adventuresome ones too), although it started to pick up by the time we left. It's strange how they leave all the CHAINS REQUIRED signs up when the road is nearly 100% clear, although I guess at night the melting snow can freeze and be challenging. We actually saw some motorcyclists up there (talk about "die-hard" ). We also went up to Julian on Sunday, but it was more of a play day, didn't have any of the coords with me. It took us 3 hours to get up there from Mission Valley. I guess it was not an original idea.
