Yesterday we took a little drive, something we all needed desperately. +
We ended up in the historical town of Julian, Ca. Originally the site of San Diego County’s only gold rush but now famous for there apple pies. 😋 🥧 +
Our first place we visited was The Eagle Mining Co. When we first showed up here we weren’t quite sure what to expect, with two old buildings and piles of old equipment everywhere it seemed unique. When we entered the general store to enquirer about the mine tour we were greeted by Paul.....a fun unique and very knowledgeable man in mining history as well as 1990’s pop music. 😂😂😂
We got lucky and ended up with him as our tour guide for the 45 min tour deep into the mountain. The tour was so much fun, Riley was right in his element with history and machinery everywhere. If you ever find your self in Julian I recommend you check this place out. +
Then after the tour we headed back into town for some apple pie and window shopping.
For how small the town is, one day just wasn’t enough time to see everything. We will definitely be back. +
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post about what apple pie place we went to.....there are a lot of choices.
