This was a memorable day trip that took a better part of the day for the drive up to the mountains.
Julian is located 60 miles Northeast of San Diego. To have strolled through Julian was a treat. It is like stepping back into time, just by walking through it’s main street. This town was founded in 1845 and had it’s gold rush after 1869. There still exists a gold mine that visitors can tour( we didn’t go there).
Julian is also very famous for it’s apples(there is it’s Apple festival every Autumn) and it’s pies. The yummiest apple and fruit pies. I know, I ate a piece 🙂
Enjoy the views taken in/around Main street, Julian:
So many stores, so little time…
You can choose between:
Traditional horsepower( Yes, that is a pony!) There were also carriages with larger horses.
Mechanical steel horse power!
The red barn look, complete with white picket fence.
Pistols and petticoats in the afternoon sun 🙂
A Photographic P.S, to show you how the famous Julian pies look like. My cousins brought home two of them to share:
If I remember well they were a berry apple and caramel apple flavors :).
