Turns out, without the dogs stopping to sniff everything, we hiked the hill/mountain in about 25 minutes in the sweltering heat (high 80's!) and found this gorgeous tree to set up our picnic underneath! There were no distractions: no phones, no other people, no dogs barking and sniffing!
|Don't be jealous of this awesome shot created by placing our camera on a down tree because I didn't want to lug the tripod!|
It was such a nice break! Well rested, we continued out venture and made our way back down to the car! This place though, in the middle of Camp Pendleton, is what I will miss most about leaving this place! It amazes me to find a little piece of heaven tucked into the middle of a booming place! (That pun was not intended but golly, it was funny, right?)
