      I'm biased of course but I have a "45-GALLON CACHE" up on a cliff overlooking the ocean, Torrey Pines area. Local cachers cannot figure out how I got that Hugh Jass cache up there, and I'm not telling. Bunch of other ammo can caches I put up on that cliff too. Also check out "It Sneaks up on San Diego."

        I've cached there 4 times now and I LOVE Point Loma starting with the virtual at the lighthouse and the ones at the military cemetery.  BREATHTAKING!  Closes at 5pm.  Then, WALK to the caches in Balboa Park, the sight of a world's fair long ago.  We parked at the gymnasium and had a great afternoon caching.

        Have fun!

          Of course, the Zoo and Wild Animal Park are must sees in that regard. I'm sure there are caches around Balboa Park (where the zoo is).

          Caching hadn't been invented yet when we lived down that way.

          [Of course, if you feel like getting out of town -- go up to Temecula/Hemet (about 90 minutes) and go see the Diamond Valley Reservoir. You can be smug knowing Waterweasel had a major hand in its construction -- he was the on site engineer.]

            Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Mark, are yours the ones that google maps shows out in the ocean at Torrey Pines? I pretty well elimintaed those from the list considering where they looked like on the map! I thought "how the hell do you get to a cache out in the ocean without a kayak or boat?" We have been to San Diego (before caching was invented) so we have already done the zoo/animal park/sea world thing. This time we are looking for more walking/hiking, great views, etc. We had already plan to cache around Torrey Pines and Balboa Park to see all the fabulous gardens and cottages, but we will definitely add the 3 virtuals at Point Loma to the list. As Anne said, the caching density in the area is mind-boggling. I was getting overwhelmed just looking at it. So the suggestions are much appreciated. Please send more if you think of them.

                  Last log for "It Sneaks up on San Diego" (GCZ1VE):
                   
                  "We took the adventurous way to the cache by crossing the creek unnecessarily and dodging LOTS of poison oak. Very cool location and set up for the cache. The container lid has some cracks, but the contents are dry. After putting things back, we went the easy way out which consisted of bulldozing our way through walls of plants a foot taller than we were. This is where I came just inches from stepping on an angry rattler. I never saw it because I jumped 10 feet in the air, but Triple Crown's eyes got as big as his head as he looked down at my feet. I also removed a tick from inside my pocket as TC was "wrapping things up." Isn't caching fun???!!!"
                  I don't think so...

                  I'm biased of course but I have a "45-GALLON CACHE" up on a cliff overlooking the ocean, Torrey Pines area. Local cachers cannot figure out how I got that Hugh Jass cache up there, and I'm not telling. Bunch of other ammo can caches I put up on that cliff too. Also check out "It Sneaks up on San Diego."

                    "We took the adventurous way to the cache by crossing the creek unnecessarily and dodging LOTS of poison oak. Very cool location and set up for the cache. The container lid has some cracks, but the contents are dry. After putting things back, we went the easy way out which consisted of bulldozing our way through walls of plants a foot taller than we were. This is where I came just inches from stepping on an angry rattler. I never saw it because I jumped 10 feet in the air, but Triple Crown's eyes got as big as his head as he looked down at my feet. I also removed a tick from inside my pocket as TC was "wrapping things up." Isn't caching fun???!!!"

                    I'm biased of course but I have a "45-GALLON CACHE" up on a cliff overlooking the ocean, Torrey Pines area. Local cachers cannot figure out how I got that Hugh Jass cache up there, and I'm not telling. Bunch of other ammo can caches I put up on that cliff too. Also check out "It Sneaks up on San Diego."

Do any of you have recommendations for "can't miss" caches in the area? Y'all did right by us with your recommendations last year when we went to San Francisco. Thanks.

                      So how much different than here? 
                       
                      California, Poison Oak.  Texas, Poison Ivy. 
                      California, rattlers.  Texas, rattlers. 
                      Ticks, well, with my experience, California 1, Texas 0.
