For those of you who have either visited or
were wanting to hike to the Black Mountain flume where they used to mine for
arsenic in the 40's, we have since found several of the mines! Click this link (http://www.hiddensandiego.net/black-mountain-mine.php)
for an update on the page and directions to the mines. We were also greeted by
a creepy, decapitated witch doll in one of the mines and found a crashed jeep
deep in the canyon. Fun!
I FINALLY went back to the Abandoned Homes
of Hellhole Canyon. This was one of my more
popular pages and yet people were having a lot of trouble finding it.
There are now TONS of photos as well as better directions. This place is
not easy to find but since looking at Google Maps it appears that there may be
a much easier way to get to them than the way we went. Happy exploring
and make sure to be respectful to this area!
Hidden San Diego has teamed
up with local fashion designers of the brand Rico Knits
to create photo shoots based around their clothing while exploring
locations off of this website. One of the spots we did a shoot at was
this spot, Inn at the Park.
Hidden San Diego's
art collective, Aesthetigeist, has
put up new art at the Red Brick House Pizza Place in University
Heights. Paintings have been selling quickly so if you fall in love with

The painting below was inspired by one of my photos from my Big Sur trip during the summer of 2012. The photo was taken at theMcWay Falls
which is an absolutely breathtaking location. I wanted to do a spin on
the painting, as I usually try to do, by breaking it up as though it
were stained glass. This painting comes framed, was created with
acrylic paint and is 13X15".
I created another "Hidden San Diego" painting. This painting was created
after spending a weekend in Warner Springs. It is based off of our view
at sunset from the home we stayed at. It is 16X20" and was
created with acrylic paint, tissue paper, a real Manzanita branch from
the area, stones and lastly fallen feathers from peacocks &
