Del Dios Gorge to San Andres Drive
Unlike the beautiful scenes we witnessed through the untouched nature, about half of our hike today was through urban areas. In other words, hiking alongside large paved roads, buildings, and well-groomed fields of grass. Part of our hike is aimed to help the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy be able to create an uninterrupted wildlife trail from the Volcan Mountain crest to the Del Mar beach coast. By walking through urban areas today, I understood the importance of this goal and our part in helping manifest it.
Overall, today was great for me to get in the motion of things, and realize our class' importance to the conservancy. This heightened my own personal goals as a hiker and videographer. I am very excited for tomorrow!
