2010.003 . Lake Hodges
2010:365 Project - Day #3 (1/3/2010)
This lake in northern San Diego County is part of the San Dieguito River Park, which runs 55 miles from Volcan Mountian, north of Julian, to the Pacific Ocean at Del Mar. The lake is currently only 45% full, and hasn't seen much water here under the bicycle bridge for many years.The pattern here seems to be the result of mud hardening and cracking in the summer, then the cracks having been filled in during the recent rainfall.
Librarianguish (aka expert geologist): verify?
In need of a little exercise, I took a hike from the Bernardo Bay parking lot over the bridge to Interstate 15, and back again. Saw a few hummingbirds, egrets, coots, and hawks, among other less identifiable birds.
