C2C Alpine CA

We launched Coast to Coast on a Chamber of Commerce day in San Diego. Lots of loved ones on both sides of the picture. My peeps were Tom and Barb G old friends and coworker from Illinois.

My room share Elizabeth B from Illinois
Staffer Tom and rider Marina who prepped to do this ride in a hurry.

I had a chuckle to see full Sag stop early on the miles. Shocking everyone inhaled every delicacy. I went PB Pickle and banana.

8 miles later (hey….there was a hill) was fish tacos that were RIDICULOUS.

Then a long grind with this cool spot. Petticoat Junction.

Here are more scenes from the road to Alpine.

Here is some info about the beautiful trail/park we Sag stopped at.

Today’s route takes us on the Father Junipero Sierra Trail where our first SAG stop will be.
SaintJunípero Serra y Ferrer, O.F.M. (/huːˈnɪpɛroʊ ˈsɛrə/; Spanish: [xuˈnipeɾo ˈsera], Catalan: Juníper Serra i Ferrer; November 24, 1713 – August 28, 1784), was a Roman Catholic Spanish priest and friar of the Franciscan Order who founded a mission in Baja California and the first nine of 21 Spanish missions in California from San Diego to San Francisco, in what was then Alta California in the Province of Las Californias, New Spain. Serra was beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 25, 1988, in the Vatican City. Pope Franciscanonised him on September 23, 2015, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., during his first visit to the United States.His missionary efforts earned him the title of Apostle of California.

The price of avocado went down the more the road went up.

The overnight hotel is lovely with all the whistles and bells.

Truly this has been an exhilarating day. Thank you for following. Sending lots of love to all.

  1. Exhilarating for us as well as for you! What an adventure! Did you stop to get some of those avocados? Your food looks amazing!

  2. I don’t remember Petticoat Junction but in 2018 and 2019 the weather sucked that first day. We started in the rain and by the time we got to the McDonalds in Alpine we were soaked. Nice to have a hotel in Alpine. We were taken to Jacumba for the night and then brought back the next day to start in Alpine. You will love Jacumba. Happy Trails.

    Hmm, Alpine always meant for me scenes of snow, mountains, old castles, and German food.

    YOU have improved that understanding (& view) of all that considerably!

    Thanks!
