Week 8 of my 52 NEW Things Project takes me to something new right BELOW my own neighborhood! As a University Heights resident, I've long seen references to Buchanan Canyon, but had no idea where exactly it was or how to get down there. On this morning, I wanted to get in a walk and photograph something that was close to home. And so I took an hour-long round trip down into the Canyon and grabbed these photos along the way.

I found information on the canyon and how to get there via an awesome site that I discovered recently called Hidden San Diego that chronicles various hidden, haunted, and amazing spots nearby to explore. Visit their site here to read more about the canyon, see more pics, and check out all the other amazing "hidden" places they're explored and chronicled around our metro area. I'm sure I'll be using that site as a resource from time to time. Thanks much Hidden San Diego!
