Tara and I visit Julian once every Fall season to get away from city life and spend some time exploring the "olden days". On our drive out we passed through many of the areas affected by the fires a few weeks ago. Our trusty Sony GPS unit tagged our photos on the map to show you where we drove.
Zoomed out to show Julian's relation to San Diego.
Detailed view of our route.
Along the way we saw the remains of several houses, very tragic. The land was scorched and not much was left. Here are a few of the pictures.
Eventually we made it to Julian where we visited the Eagle & High Peak gold mines for a history lesson and mine tour.
(Lovely work conditions for the miners)
Tara loves Jeeps!
The last stop before leaving Julian was a stop at The Julian Pie Company for Cider Mill Donuts, Apple Cider, Cookies and Cinnamon Pie Crust. Yummmm.
