Lake Hodges

One of the only actual lakes in San Diego, Lake Hodges is a gorgeous spot in San Diego, and a rather un-touristy one too. The drive to the lake is breathtaking, as Del Dios Hwy gives some of the best views of the lake that I’ve ever seen. The drive somewhat reminds me of Big … More Lake Hodges

It’s 100+ degrees out, you’re trekking through Hellhole Canyon, and you happen to discover what appears to be an abandoned hippie … More Devil’s Den
