I have a favorite get-away spot only an hour's drive away. When our weekend house-guests cancelled, I said to Robert, "Let's run away from home." He said, "OK."

In the Cuyamacha Mountains east of San Diego, it has a stream with water that runs year round.

There were only 2 other sites taken this weekend.

Robert is helping me back in. "Look out for the ROCK!" he said.

Peaceful spot, with big trees... , and water at many sites. Otherwise, a boondocking camp.

We were only staying overnight, so I didn't unhitch. $10.00 for the site.

Part of my motivation was that I finally broke down and bought a new digital camera, a Kodak Easy-Share CD-33. I thought that I'd go for a walk, and snap a few pictures along the way. Here, from the next site over (vacant), is a picture looking back at our site.

Then I just turned around where I stood and took this picture:

I went down to the little foot bridge, and stood on a rock nearby, to compose this shot...

Then turned to take one from the other side...

And the camera's batteries died!

After we came home, I went out to get the accessory kit that included a camera case, 2 sets of rechargeable batteries, and a plug-in battery charger.

Digital cameras eat batteries like a teenage kid eats potato chips! That's why my wife and I bought two sets of rechargeable batteries and a recharger.

Nice campsite.

I haven't been to San Diego in years (I used to go once a year on business). Last time I was there we drove to the summit of Mount Palomar. Good grief, the rattlesnakes! I've never seen so many rattelsnakes! They were everywhere!

As I recall, there was a very beautiful state park on the top of Mount Palomar. We drove through it and were astounded at the big pines. Ponderosa pines, I think. We even took a hike through the woods (despite the rattlesnakes) to a spring called "Thunder Springs". We expected a huge, gushing spring but were disappointed to find a very small and trickling spring coming out of the rocks.

A beautiful area. One day I'd like to go back with my Casita.

You want springs? Ahhhh! Come visit Oregon. We can start with Jack Springs, that come out of the ground to create Jack Creek. A nice large creek from there on. Then we can move on close by to Metolius Springs which comes out of the rocks into a full size river. A little farther south is Big Springs that bubbles up out of the ground into Clear Lake. Clear Lake is a natural lake. The dam created by a lava flow. There are trees that can be seen on the bottom of the lake that were there when the lake was formed.

There a few more around too. Like Austin & Bagby that boiling water come up out of the ground.

Just remember it rains all the time out here.

Yeah, we have some monster springs here in the South, too. My favorite is Ichetucknee Springs in Florida. Basically, the Ichetucknee River just suddenly appears out of several enormous limestone sinks--water about as clear as the clearest air erupting from the earth and flowing that way for miles and miles. Nothing better than tubing and swimming down that pure beautiful river. Florida has a number of such springs, several of which we'll be visiting in March with our Casita and our canoe.

The first one we're going to hit is Salt Springs. But we'll hit a couple of others, including Rainbow Springs.
