June 13, 2016 (26 miles across the sea) – Catalina is the perfect romantic getaway.   The beautiful shores of Catalina Island “The Island of Romance” is an easy boat ride from San Pedro to a whole different world.  A world of Mediterranean charm where you can picnic, stroll the beach, watch whales the dolphins play and discover a secluded cove.  Put away your watch because you will be on “island time.” So how did this unique place come to be?

SD TRAILS: IRON MOUNTAIN

 

By Randy Zuniga

January 15, 2015 (San Diego’s East County)--Iron Mountain, located at the backside of Poway, just off of the Highway 67, stands 2,696 ft. tall. I consider this a moderate hike of about 6 miles in length and 1,000 ft. in elevation gain.  I don’t want to put a time frame on it because everyone is different and anyone could spend all day out there if they took the time to take in every sight along the journey.
