Julian, CA

Several years ago, my friend Robin was stationed in San Diego. She took me to a place called Julian up in the hills north east of San Diego. It is a cute little former mining town. It is now known for it's apples and apple pies and art. I had only been there the one time. My sister and I stopped in on our way back from San Diego. It was all decorated for the fourth of July and seems to be a favorite destination for weekend bikers. We took a little carriage tour. We bought a pie to take home and had a glass of apple cider. We even saw some wild turkeys. It 's a pretty drive, even just getting there.
We rode in the far carriage.
My sister in the carriage. Also some of the collection of bikers. You can see the one that I took a photo of by itself, has a little leopard print going on.
Two Turkey hens, and if you look closely you can see two adolescent turkeys.
