A great time was had by all on Palomar Mountain

At 7:00 in the morning, I met Princess Toadstool and we headed off to meet some of the others in the San Diego Caching Event Team near "Nessy is Good Eats" off I-15 in North County.

Fisnjack was there, and then TrailGators showed up, and then Tinfoil-Hat Head & Wall-eyed Nutbag. We piled into two vehicles and headed off to meet duganrm and rogue and Toby's Gang near "Gray Matters," a cache that had gone missing that we replaced for Chuy.

We started up, up, up a road that at times was similar to the Old Burma Road near Pine Valley. At most of the caches, the views would have been astounding, if the air had been clear. In contrast to the way it has been recently, it was very hazy.

One of the most fun caches was at the rock-walled ruins of a house.

duganrm decided it looked like a garage, and his vintage Mustang fit perfectly.

At the top of the mountain is a lookout tower.

Some of the group climbed up the stairs while others of us looked on as they ascended.

We made our way down the mountain on a very steep, single-lane dirt road that seemed to barely cling to the side of the mountain. As we continued on the road, a cache far down the mountain remained elusive for the longest time as we made our way down, down, down to "Take the High Road."

Before the day was over, we found five more caches, bringing our total for the day to more than 20. The last cache of the day is near the beautiful bridge that spans I-15 to the south of 76.

We had a great time and I look forward to another caching adventure with whomever makes up the SDCET the next time it meets.
