Day 1 on the Southern Tier Route

Our flight to San Diego was uneventful. We assembled our bikes at the airport and headed west to the ocean. We started the route at Dog Beach (see photo). We hiked east along the San Diego River to Lakeside, stopping along the way for water and a pee break. When we arrived at Alpine at sundown, we'd gained 2,000 feet of elevation. We couldn't find a place to stay so we continued east to the Ma-Tar-Awa RV camper park after dark. We found a spot under an oak tree for our tent. We were so tired that we went to bed after eating almonds rather than cooking dinner. 50 miles biked today.
