We encourage participants to plan activities for non-workshop hours. In the past, participants have gone hiking, bike riding or like to use the relaxing time to catch up on reading and writing. There are several hiking locations so don't forget your walking shoes! There are also nearby locations that we can visit if there are participants that are interested in exploring. Beware that cell phone service is limited.
The beautiful forest and mountain meadows of Palomar Mountain State Park are in northern San Diego County on the west side of Palomar Mountain. Large pine, fir and cedar trees make the park one of the few areas in southern California with a Sierra Nevada-like atmosphere. The park features camping, picnicking, hiking, and fishing (trout) in Doane Pond. Coniferous forests cover much of the 1,862 acres, in contrast to the dry lowlands surrounding the mountain.
Elevation within the park averages 5,000 feet above sea level, making evenings cool even during the summer. A number of vista points offer spectacular panoramic views both westerly toward the ocean and inland toward the desert, particularly from Boucher Hill Summit. There, you'll also find the historic Boucher Hill Fire Lookout.
