How many times have I said to myself I would climb up Round Mountain on one of my trips out to ABDSP? Maybe a million? Well..I did this trip out...
View from Round Mountain.
I parked under the bridge and started the trek out on the railroad tracks before I cut over thru the thick brush
SDGE Sunrise Power Link project in action
Round Mtn is not super huge to climb
The register and DeAnza in the background
I guess we know who mostly summits this small peak
I am not sure what kind of bush this is but is has very bright, pretty yellow berries
The railroad tracks leading off into Carrizo Gorge
Some kind of old dam down in Carrizo Gorge
Down in the thick of Carrizo Gorge
Water drain pipe that crosses under the 8 freeway, I saw Border Patrol on foot patrolling this area, they told me they were looking for “clientele”.
Native Americans inhabited this area
