Family trip to Lake Cuyamaca

Our Trip to Lake Cuyamaca

Lake Cuyamaca - boy in lake- ducks- family adventure

CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

What a beautiful nature adventure just 50 miles east of San Diego. Our boys had a blast watching the ducks, geese, coyote, and deer. Yes, there is a coyote the locals call “the shy coyote” and true to his name he saw us and ran off to hide.

My boys fed the ducks and geese, climbed trees, hiked some trails, threw rocks into the lake, and ran around up and down the pier.  Who says fun family adventures have to be costly? We ate lunch at our loca In-and-Out before heading there and then had dinner at home.

When (not if, but when) we vist Lake Cuyamaca¬†again, I’ll be sure to pack us a picnic, enjoy rowing a boat with the family, and again take in all the beauty that beckons you to come again.

We are on a mission to rediscover our city and parks nearby one family adventure at a time. Please share with us a trip you think we should take.

Our Annie’s Canyon Trail Adventure

6 Nov trail walk Annie's canyon trail adventure

If you are ever in San Diego, CA and enjoy hiking, this is one nature trail to take located in San Elijo Lagoon County Park and Ecological Reserve.

Hubby wanted to surprise the boys and me with a little nature walk and didn’t mention certain “strenuous” parts of the trail. Oh man, I think you can hear me running out of breath a couple of times (hey, I was also trying to record and talk to ya’ll).

In the end, this hiking trail was beautiful; it was surrounded with trees, a lagoon, and the magnificent boulders.

We hope to instill in our boys the desire to explore and be adventurous and curious about the world indoors and outdoors. There is so much to discover and so much to appreciate when we are open to it.

We love adventure and would any cool places you can recommend us. We are planning a trip to Yosemite Park in the spring so let us know what’s along the way!
