Spectacular Sunrise: East county mountain drive is another world

A wistful-sounding exit off of Interstate 8 in eastern San Diego County, Sunrise Highway wanders across the summit of the Laguna Mountains. While there are a few hairpin turns, it’s mostly a pleasant cruise through the Cleveland National Forest and portions of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park that stretch to the mountain tops.

It’s my 11th Joyride Guru ride on Amazon Kindle and it’s now on sale for just $2.99, FREE if you’re an Kindle Unlimited member.

San Diego County’s only National Forest Scenic Byway, Sunrise Highway cruises through forest and meadows at 6,000 feet.

What’s so great about Sunrise Highway?

  • It’s easy to get to.
  • It’s easy to drive.
  • Trees.
  • Food stops nearby or on the road.
  • Usually not crowded.
  • Spectacular vistas.

As with the other Kindle drives, working links mean you can click and get a map, more information on some of the destinations along your journey and it fits on your smart phone, using the Kindle app.

It’s Chapter 4 in the print version, Joyrides Around San Diego, so if you’re an Kindle Unlimited member, you can have the drive and directions easily accessible and use Google Maps to navigate. It’s that way now with all chapters in Joyrides.

See you on the road!
