Day 8: Barrel Springs to Warner Springs – 8.3 miles
Dan and I woke up on our last day on trail with Mother Nature reminding us that winter was on its way. It was one week until winter solstice. A north wind was bringing cold air to the valley and the clouds had thickened enough to block the sun.
It was a couple hours’ drive back to San Diego from Warner Springs which we broke up with a celebratory stop at the Julian Pie Company.
The next few days were spent swapping stories, visiting some local breweries, and hanging out at the beach. Having time with our best friends was the perfect way to wrap up our week and our adventure.
