San Diego County Board of Supervisors representative Dianne Jacob spearheaded the plan to open county parks to workouts and worship. Lying around on a couch while watching television is simply not the best way to protect yourself from a deadly virus. Go out there and take a hike or a run, ride your bike, find a patch of grass and do some yoga. Keep your body and your lungs strong so you can weather this storm.
We have noticed an abundance of climbers on Cowles Mountain over the past few weeks — even at night when we’ve seen a few hikers continue over to Pyles Peak. We have observed how far technology has advanced in just the past 10 years, so that a person can illuminate a treacherous single-track trail to ascend to the top of Cowles Mountain, even on a moonless night. It’s technology that will also help us address this virus hopefully in the near future so we can return to a more normal way of living. We simply all need to pull our weight, wear a mask and socially distance.
