Climbed A Mountain Today...TWICE! :-)

Twice...? Yep, forgot the camera the 1st time...lol!
And that's not the LEAST of what I've been cramming into my WONDERFUL stay in San Diego...!
My sister has been QUITE the gracious host and has shown me all around Balboa park. Earlier this morning we walked/jogged around her neighborhood of TierraSanta and then hiked up into Mission Hills which is practically in her BACK YARD! Climbed Mount Fortuna to take in the splendor of the view of the valley and other mountains. Later we biked for a couple hours all over Coronado Island and out to the end of the Silver Thread on their super paved path dedicated for bikes / pedestrians only. I had a bike black Electra with fat wide tires but a smooth gear system that MOVED that bike on the flat straightaways...woosh! LOVED going flat out on the bike while on the Silver Thread!
Later after dinner I hiked back up Mount Fortuna again this time armed w/ my camera...without a wide angle lens it just doesn't do justice to the panoramic view up there, but had to at least TRY! :-)
Well, now I'm fried lobster-style, sunscreen just didn't cut it, so slathered with aloe-after-burn gel. Hope it fades by morning. Usually does.
Tomorrow? More hiking and who knows? It's just been a blast!
See all my fellow SparkPeople members, coaches and all Fri. evening at the Gaslamp Townhouse and at the Convention on Saturday!
Posting a link to some of my San Diego pics thus far...not sure if it will work, so here goes...!
