Sunday, February 1 - We took a ride up the mountain to the touristy town of Julian, CA, today.  The ride up the windy, twisty mountain road is very interesting. The scenery is wonderful. Not surprisingly, there were plenty of motorcyclist enjoying the curvy road.

Julian, 4,235 feet, is an historic gold mining town. This town is famous for their apples and specifically, their apple pie. So of course, we had to stop at famous Mom's for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee.  Paul had the traditional apple pie; Marsha had the sugar-free, applesauce sweetened piece. Both were very good.

We spent about two hours walking around town and visiting some of the shops. We left empty handed but enjoyed this quaint little town. We noticed how nice all the merchants are.

For the ladies, Marsha says…If you go to Julian’s, don’t miss E. Barrett General Store. It smells divine inside. There is a great story about the shop, and the owner makes all the lotions, soaps, etc.




It was such a gorgeous day, we just had to grill some chicken.

There are trails right from the campground. Bella just loves this place. Look at the name of the trail she chose for us to hike today.

Catclaw Trail.
