Myers Valley hike

After spending Saturday night in the Desert View Tower with the San Diego Trail Tramps, we headed 1,000 feet down to Myers Valley where we hiked around some cool rock formations like this one.
Tim checked out the remains of a stone hut that we found about half way along our route. One of the guys in the group said the hut was used in the 1920s by workers who built the old highway that runs through the area.
The desert lupines were in full bloom.

Early on in the hike we walked through this giant culvert running under Interstate 8.
We stopped for lunch under one of the palm clusters that are fed by a natural spring.
