My wife and I hiked up and over Horseshoe Peak in an effort to do some elevation training.  The trail was steep and slippery in several areas, especially coming down the hill just noth of Skydive San Diego.  We had the entire trail to ourselves, not seeing anyone else except a Border Patrol jeep.  Due to our slow pace and the short days, we had to walk the last 3 miles along Otay Lakes Road in the dark with my headlamp.
