After getting up early to bid the blue moon goodbye, Kongo heads out to climb nearby Cowles Mountain, which is part of the San Diego Mission Trails Regional Park. Cowles Mountain is a little more than 1500 feet above sea level and although the guides say it’s an easy hike, the climb up in 90 F heat was a bit tiring for this monkey although there were lots of younger people actually running up the mountain and down again.
Cowles Mountain is one of the most popular hiking trails in San Diego and the views on a clear day are well worth the effort. Kongo recommends light shorts, stable shoes, sun glasses, a hat, and bring plenty of water.
Travel safe. Have fun.
