B4BC: Boarding For Breast Cancer

You know how important it is for us to support breast cancer awareness and resources! We were honored to sit down with Kim Shinner, program director at Boarding for Breast Cancer.

The connection with B4BC is what educated her at a young age about the importance of early detection and self breast exams. Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 29 and credits B4BC with helping to save her life.

For Our Easter hike, we went exploring Wilderness Gardens Preserve in Pala, Ca! This is a beautiful hike and the trail is well marked which is a plus!

It’s a bit of a drive from San Diego as it took us about 50 minutes to get there but it’s well worth it! It’s about 4 miles total and pretty easy to navigate.

The best trails are the Frank Special trail which is the most scenic and harder than the others. Gorgeous views with a bridge and stairs to navigate! Great photo ops!

The Camellia trail is at the west end and was pretty as well! We loved seeing the Old Pala Grist Mill from 1881 and learning about the history here! A grist mill grinds crops into flour! This was the first grist mill in Northern San Diego County!

The 1st inhabitants here were the Luiseno Indians and they were here for thousands of years. There is a lot of history here! We love that it is dog friendly but it gets warm early so hiking in the early morning is optimal especially when it gets warmer!

Here is our journey!!
