Road Trip to San Diego from Utah---aborted BOH trails

To celebrate an anniversary with the wife, we spent last week in San Diego (leaving before all of that flooding they are experiencing in so Cal over the weekend). The Trailhawk performed exceptionally well, as usual, on I-15 all the way down. We love the tech package items such as ACC and Lane Sense. Averaged about 23 mpg, which was a little lower than expected. (Have down 24 on other trips).

Spent the week at a beach side duplex and loved the ocean views. Very enjoyable for a Utah desert landlubber! Enjoyed visits to Point Loma and also to the USS Midway museum. After returning to our parking spot for the USS Midway, we found two other Cherokees parked next to us. Ours is on the far right.

Had some rain at the end of the week, which turned heavy as we were leaving. The hard rain had a negative effect on my attempt to visit two Jeep Badge of Honor trails on the route home. We found very muddy conditions at the Pinyon Mountain Trail at the Anza Borrego State Park. It looked bad, and since we were alone and coming home from a relaxing week, I did not want to chance getting stuck, so we aborted that trail.

Further along our route, we found 6 inches of snow with more falling at the upper trailhead to Schnebly Hill trail in Arizona. Again, not wanting to take a lot of time under less than ideal conditions, we again aborted the attempt. So scratch them both for another day and time.

Besides, the wife surmised, you are still waiting on 6 BOH hard badges, why add to the total?
