San Diego 17B Black Mountain

This is the first pond we discovered, and was entered from a cul-de-sac. 
We parked and walked into the swampy underbrush, around the edge of a fence, 
skirted mud and reeds, and proceeded a half-mile down a sandy path through scrub. 
We finally found the pond, seemingly in the middle of nowhere.

The dam had no safety signs, fences or rails. Fall 40 ft. at your own pleasure!
