Want to take a drive with me along the Sunrise Highway?

#1 This is part of the old highway.

 We started our drive today at Sea Level on the coast and are going to drive along a crest of mountains. 

The first stop is as soon as we get into the Cleveland National Forest. We took a take a quick hike here.

Notice the Chaparral Bushes, and hillside. This is at 3000 feet above sea level. 

#2 Lily is my sons dog.

We had four dogs with us!  

#3 The all had a blast.

We stopped at many places along the way. 

#4 The trees are bare for winter.

The next little stop is the view of the Santa Rosa Mountains in the back round. 

#5 Do you see it?

There is a coyote in this picture. 

#6 The coyote follows his own trail.

Can you see him now? 

#7 He trotted off..

We sat and just watched him, his ears kept switching back and forth, and a steady trot, into the countryside. 

#8 There was no place to stop for this view.

Luckily this highway is not heavily traveled. I drove really slow. 

#9 I was able to click two pictures.

We are getting higher...

#10 One more view before we get to our next stop.

This is looking down toward the Anza Borrego Desert in the Cleveland National Forest. Yes it is a national forest and now all the facilities are closed. 

I will have more of this drive on a post called Up on the Mountain coming soon. I hope you enjoyed this little drive.

Have a great day!
