Camping in Julian, CA

Julian, CA, is one of our favorite camping spots.

We stay in a campsite that has a little pond. Teddy loves to fish.

We wake up early to fish, when the shadows are long and the light is golden.

Kitty isn’t much of a fisherlady. But, I did catch her saluting the sun.

Autumn in Julian is exaggerated by the drought and the countryside was vivid shades of orange, yellow and tan.

Julian is also home of the Apple Pie. Oh my… did we eat pie!

And, when the day ends, the children look like camping children should… tired and dirty and happy.

Here’s to these happy camping days we share together. How very precious they are.

 

 

Here are some of our other camping trips.
