a day in the mountains-part 3
A leisurely stroll, a slow mountain tour; that is what we were afforded on the Tuesday afternoon we drove along highway 79 toward Julian and some apple pie. Of course, our relaxed pace found us in Julian just as they roll up the sidewalks. Five o'clock seems to be the magic hour when every door shuts and the locks are turned until the next day. But thankfully, for us and the other village visitors, a couple of doors remained open to offer the pie and ice cream, cookies and cinnamon rolls we all sought.
