No not that one... more like a little day trip up into the mountains. As much as I love living smack in the middle of the city, it's nice to have countryside less than an hour away.
Lindsay watches as I scare away some cows. She proved the more interesting view :)
Lindsay is great in a lot of ways, but the fact that she's up for just about anything at just about any time makes her an excellent partner in crime. I'm lucky that I've got someone with so much patience. It was a relatively quiet drive. The road had an occasional group of motorcycles but traffic was nonexistent. We stopped off at a few turnouts to enjoy the varying views.
When we got to Julian we stopped to walk around a bit, and of course to get some apple pie. The pie this time wasn't as good as the last time we went...but there's a good bet it's because we took it home instead of eating it there with a scoop of ice cream. It was on the way home that we saw a real sight though. A brush fire in its infancy.
Thankfully there were some authorities already on the scene and fire crews were not too far behind. I didn't hear much about this fire in the news so I can only assume it wasn't anything crazy. It's always great to get away for a bit and forget about responsibilities and obligations. There's something inherently peaceful about a nice long scenic drive.
