I had someone argue with me the other day, insisting there was no unpaved public road from Pala Road up to Palomar Mountain.
So here’s a news story I did with local TV station KGTV back in 2003, when my first book, Weekend Driver San Diego, was published. I can testify the road is still open, as I took it last year and have some raw video to prove it, plus photos in my Kindle book, Journey to the Stars, which you can purchase right now for just $2.99.
This was a fun trip with legendary San Diego news videographer Lee Louis, who’s now retired. We talked with one of the rangers about Nate Harrison. I certainly look younger but the mountain looks just about the same.
