10-14"s of snow forecast tonight and into tomorrow in the upper elevations in San Diego County

An easy San Diego County snow run is Nate Harrison Grade. It runs from Pauma Valley to the top of Mt. Palomar. You'll need 4WD as you get the closer to the top but a stocker with tires other than street tread will do fine, and it's minutes from San Marcos. take chains, you may need them if you drive down the back way.

For a great burger stop at Nessy's at the 76/15 off ramp

I-15 to the Hwy 76/Bonsall/Palomar Turn Off (Exit #46). Head East on 76 about 12.5 miles to Nate Harrison Grade road. Turn left turn on Nate Harrison Grade. Head through the orchards, watch for high-water at the water crossing, it can turn bad rather quickly. A car got washed down stream last time we ran up there. Continue up to the top of Mt. Palomar. Awesome views and steep drop offs, you'll hit snow around 3000-3500' level.

Should be fun, just watched the news and forecast is snow down to 2,000 on Sunday. Might run up there if the Jeep is ready by then.

If you make the run, once you reach the top you'll end up at the state campground. You can drive through and you'll end up by the Palomar Observatory. From there you can head down through Warner Springs and go east to the desert or south to Santa Ysabel and D.udley's Bakery for some great bread. Swing back through Ramona and there's place called Cheer's, one of the best burgers in SD County, catch the 79 and back to Escondido. A good day run
