I’m just finishing up writing my newest Weekend Driver column for the San Diego Union-Tribune — No. 116, by the way — where I take a Nissan Maxima up to Pine Valley.
Part of the drive goes on Pine Creek Road, but I don’t go all the way this time to Sunrise Highway.
Pine Creek Road to Sunrise Highway? Isn’t Sunrise Highway on the other side of Pine Valley?
Yes, it is, but Pine Creek Road also goes to Sunrise Highway, and on the other side of the Mount Laguna community.
Confused? Check out my post from a 2012 trip that unexpectedly ended up at an elevation 2,000 feet higher than where it started.
