My roommate and I enjoy going for road trips on weekends.. while
this is often Disneyland, one of our other favorite destinations is the
mountains east of San Diego, and a town known as Julian. Locals also know
Julian as "that place where you can get apple pie." Jamie has
been telling me that it snows up there in the winter, and since I was skeptical
about the whole thing, I took him up on an offer to go up there. So we hop
into Jeff's car and head north....
And what do you know!
Snow! On the left you see Lake Cuyamaca, as
we drive up the mountains towards Mt. Laguna, to find some deeper snow.
We find a place on the way to Laguna
that looks good. So we get out of the car and walk around (only a few snowballs
were thrown--I had foolishly just eaten and was not in the mood to run around).
We walked up the hill to see what was up there (more snow) and it was pretty
deep... 2-3 feet I'm guessing. Left picture
shows Jamie down the hill waiting for my return.
And yes, there I am (right),
stumbling back down the hill.. and I was certainly cold.. it was time to
get back in the car and defrost, on the way to our eventual goal--Julian,
We got a pretty good sunset (below) on our
way. FYI, a many of these were actually taken while in the car, moving.
We finally reached our goal.. Julian! There was a line out the
door at Mom's Pies, but that didn't phase us-- the hourlong journey MUST
have a pie at the end of it! We even brought some home, as you can see below!
