Took a friend to see an old favorite in the foothills of the Cuyamacas. Sunshine Mtn. shares parking w/the ever-popular 3 Sisters Trail, but is in the opposite direction. 99.9% of ppl go to the falls @ 3 Sisters instead, so we normally have this pk. all to ourselves. On this day we did see one guy, however, who was warning us of ticks along the way. Thankfully we completed the hike w/zero ticks in tow, maybe cuz this guy picked them all up for us.
It's a short hike but presents a bit of a navigational challenge @ times b/c the trail is overgrown, & the latter part is pretty much XC to the summit.
On the way to the parking area:

Home is where the hiking is.
