The drive from San Diego to Julian was a wonderful 2 hours of winding country roads that landed us in the beautiful old gold mining town settled in the early 1820’s. On the way, we passed all kinds of farms, but imagine my surprise to see a Camel Farm 🙂 According to local historians, approximately 4 million dollars in gold was minded from the hills of Julian before the mines dried up. In the process, the land owners and towns people learned that Julian was a wonderful place to grow apples and now, Julian is home to a row of beautiful bed and breakfasts, small shops, antique stores and the best apple pie bakeries in California.
