LB50 Photo Tour – Pedro to Cuyamaca

The Lost Boys 50 Mile Trail Run course contains dramatic changes in ecosystems and scenery. The race starts along highway 78 in the Anza-Borrego Desert and eventually climbs up into the pines at Cuyamaca Peak, finishing at Cuyamca Lake. Below is a photo tour from Pedro Fages to Cuyamaca Peak (miles 30 through 43 of the course ).


 


Before we begin that tour here’s a couple shots of the start line on the desert floor to show the contrast between the upper section of the course:
