SUN CITY

So here I am at my new digs in Sun City
Only temporarily I hope, considering what I'm encountering with my new landlady
Suffice to say, in my renting a room situation, I encountered the Best with Jeff in Rancho Bernardo...and the Worst with Rose
My current roommates, Ronnie and Rick are great guys
Now if we can just get Rose to move out --of Her house...ahem
xxx
Well, aside from the accommodations --which are in themselves, fine...though my 56" TV, that was in the room when I first saw it
diminished first to a 15? inch screen on a blurry screen --then to a sharp twelve inch screen
it was a question of what kind of hiking opportunities there might be
When the question was posed to Rose, she hadn't a clue, except Idyllwild
xxx
IDYLLWILD!!  I didn't even get up there for the 10 months I lived at Heritage Ranch
Well, I did pass a "Canyon Lake" sign on the freeway a few miles to the South
However, Rose informed me that the Lake was private property.  All of it??  Maybe it's like Lake Hodges, with houses up on the hillsides
xxx
So checking the internet map it does indeed look surrounded by homes...so what trails may be available I can't say
Then checking closer to home, namely the hills a few blocks from this house and Voila
ALL KINDS OF TRAILS...level and up a multitude of hills
My maiden voyage took me up to maybe 3 or 400' feet
And the views!!

The San Grogorio Mts. according to Ronny

That's my objective

Higher I go

xxxThese mountains look like the one's I saw from San Jacinto (Heritage Ranch)
They being in the same general direction
xxx

Getting closer to the top

Looking down to where my car is parked
The path between the two poles leads to the dead end street
xxxx
.......
.............................................Two motorbikes are zooming up and down the paths today..................................My first "rock face" encounter today
.....................................................................................................................................................................It's a two-faced rock --you decide
xxx

At first glance I thought this was Canyon Lake...but, no
It's also a reservior
xxx
...
Appears to be a dumping ground on top
xxx

Is it a road or a trail going to the top of this hill?
Looks like a pretty wide trail

........................................................Looking Northeast --I think...or more North..........................................................Big Brother is listening
