How many times have I said to myself I would climb up Round Mountain on one of my trips out to ABDSP? Maybe a million? Well..I did this trip out...

View from Round Mountain.


I parked under the bridge and started the trek out on the railroad tracks before I cut over thru the thick brush


SDGE Sunrise Power Link project in action


Round Mtn is not super huge to climb


The register and DeAnza in the background


I guess we know who mostly summits this small peak


I am not sure what kind of bush this is but is has very bright, pretty yellow berries


The railroad tracks leading off into Carrizo Gorge


Scat DeJour


Some kind of old dam down in Carrizo Gorge


Down in the thick of Carrizo Gorge


Water drain pipe that crosses under the 8 freeway, I saw Border Patrol on foot patrolling this area, they told me they were looking for “clientele”.


Native Americans inhabited this area


A spiral


The Owl


This is a panorama photo from the top of Round Mtn. From left to right, Tule Mtn, DeAnza Springs Resort, Jacumba Peak, Gray Mtn and of course the 8 freeway running thu the middle of it all

Nice! I always look at that peak anytime I drive out the 8. I want to visit it someday and also the Squaw Tit on the other side of the freeway.

Squaw Tit is a fun, quick hike. I wrote a post about it a couple years ago http://www.sefcik.com/2010/03/squaw-tit-to-table-mtn.html

Border Patrol has a mobile unit up on Table Mtn now, been there awhile.
Here are some pics from my cell phone

Squaw Tit in the distance, "Bones" my dog looking on...
