Julian, CA - homemade as apple pie

Entering the small town of Julian, one is struck by the historic presence of a bygone era. Once a bustling town, at the forefront of the expansion west, it is now more of a quaint spot to get a great apple pie and homemade goodness


This is the pie from Julian's pies and it is delectable - soft and sweet.

A competing bakery called Mom's was similarly built for large quantities of pies.

A quick 10 minute walk around the edges of town you can see some fanciful wild turkeys scurrying through to another stomping ground - the cemetery.



On the way out of town I saw some fruit stands and places where you could buy Ostrich or emu eggs, but I left with some apples...


.....and of course a pie.
