Julian California

We made it up to Julian, California yesterday.  It sure looked great with all the fresh snow.  There was a good foot or more of fresh, wet snow still on the ground.

Julian is a cool little historic gold mining town that has a lot of character and charm.  It seems to be a popular choice for magazines doing stories like “Best Places to Live in the U.S.” or “Best Small Towns in America”  Stories like that are a great way to ruin a good thing, but besides too much traffic, it is still a neat little place.  O yeah, it is also famous for it’s apple pies – and they are good!

We had trouble getting up to Julian from Borrego as Highway 78 is still closed.  It is closed because there are so many fallen trees in the road – even in Julian, there were broken trees and branches all over, and unfortunately, most of them were off the beautiful oaks. 

What I also found interesting; the desert side of the mountains received far more snow then the ocean side – some of the deepest snow was in areas that I think of as usually fairly dry like along route S2 and in Ranchita.  Places on the west side like Santa Ysabel didn’t have any snow.

  1. My mom loves that town. I passed through there once without realizing I was going to. Great images with the snow. Is snow fairly unusual for them?

  2. I got one of their apple pies when I passed through their in October. It was great. Ship one up to me and you won’t have to get me anything else for Christmas:)

    That’s funny Laurent because my mom does as well. I probably wouldn’t have known of this town if it wasn’t for my parents talking about it.

    I think some snow isn’t unusual, but judging from all the downed trees and power lines, I would say this much snow must be unusual.

    So Milo, does that mean I can return that new Canon 5D II that I had picked out for you. 🙂

    Thanks guys,

    Ron
