Spectacular San Diego Panorama Pic

Recommended Posts


wow, I didnt realize San Diego was so close to the mountains. Nice pic

The highest peak of the mountain range is about 45 miles east of downtown and is approximately 6,600' above sea level.

How often do those mountains have snow?

It snows every winter in the mountains. Because it's never cold enough here, the snow only lasts a few days until the next storm arrives. The last storm dumped 24" of snow on the highest peaks, which makes great fun for us flatlanders. Last weekend, I had to drive only 40 minutes from my house before I hit the snow. :)

Wow, that shows how diverse the area around SD is. Few places have warm winters, and both beaches and snow within an hour's drive. I know Vancouver has got both too, but their climate is far less attractive that SD's.

^^ Indeed! It's nearly 75 degrees now, and it's obvious the snow is melting quickly.
