Cuyamaca Rancho State Park

After our recent rains, Ashley and I had a chance to do some hiking in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, in the mountains east of San Diego. We did a couple a trails there and write ups of those, as well as some products we tested, will follow in the next several days. I wanted to share some pictures with our readers of the vast amount of wildlife that we saw while in this park. If you have not been to Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, I would recommend a visit not only for the amazing hiking, but also for the visibility of wildlife in the park.

The vast meadows of the park offer amazing viewing of wildlife. While there, we saw close to 50 wild turkeys in 3 separate flocks. We also counted 25 deer, 3 of them were bucks, and the wildlife photographer we ran into informed us that he watched a pack of Coyotes had make a kill about an hour before we arrived. This park offers amazing wildlife viewing opportunities. Make sure to bring binoculars or a spotting scope when you go to this park. The top picture is of the valley where we saw the most wildlife. The picture was taken on the hike to Cuyamaca Peak.
