Pictures-New Years Day at Potato Chip Rock and Mt Woodson

Did a great first hike of the year from the fire station outside Ramona to the top of Mt Woodson and Potato Chip Rock. The sweeping views of San Diego from downtown and Point Loma all the way up the coast as far as you can see are amazing. The snowcapped mountains were visable looking inland.

Seeing as it was a holiday, there were quite a few people up there waiting to get a picture on the rock.Everyone helped each other out by taking photos.

Here's the pics.

Nice day for a hike and great pictures. I love Mt. Woodson. It's my go-to if I want to do a nice short hike.

I was standing next to this guy when he filmed this.He was saying he would post it on you tube. He had a camera set up on a tripod and it took pictures about every 15 seconds. He was there quite a while.Turned out nice.

Thanks, Dez, for the great photos! I didn't see you in the video. How far is the drop below that potato chip?

The guy filming showed up after I had been up there. One or two people in my pics are in the video too.

If you fell off of the end,I guess you would fall about 30 feet? into the bushes.

One of those little dogs was a freaked out being up there!
