The title just about says it all. And no, I didn’t stop to take any photographs, just savored the beauty in my mind.
Hwy 78, specifially the section between Escondido and the beginning of Anza Borrego Desert State Park, is stunning. Rolling green hills with outcroppings of ganite interspersed turned into mountains with houses hidden in idyllic little valleys belows. I was reminded of Scotland, although the green was not as emerald and the sun was shining.
There were a few cute towns along the way that seemed pretty well set up for the tourists. Not too many for sale signs (I wouldn’t want to leave either), some hiking trails leading into the mountains that were visable from the road. Horse ranches and apple tree farms nestled in with a few streams running throughout.
A highly recommended little drive~
