Day Trip through a late Winter Storm (7 photos)

A late winter storm brought snow to the higher elevations of San Diego County. Shuwen and I took the opportunity to see some dramatic clouds and weather, and went for a little road trip into the back country.

We took Highway 78 and drove up to Ramona and Julian, then down into San Felipe Valley – this part of Highway 78 is also called Banner Grade Road. We made a left onto Highway S2 at Scissor’s Crossing, and continued north to then make a right onto Highway S22. In Ranchita, we saw the “Anza Borrego Desert State Park” sign covered in snow (bucket list item, check!;-) and conditions were quite adverse – strong winds & snow, cold, brrrrr! Just shy of the desert and Montezuma Grade Road we turned back and drove home, via Lake Henshaw and Highway 79.
