We had thought we would take a ride through Borrego Springs but didn't make it. Maybe next year we'll do that. However, the snow in Julian is not what one expects to see in southern California. We did that a couple years ago too.ReplyDelete
It is a long ride until you reach the mountains, I agree. From there it is not so far to Julian.Delete
Since the town is on an elevation slightly higher than 4000 feet snow up there is not unusual during the winter season. Many visitors come up from San Diego right after a snowfall to enjoy the "strange" white stuff for a day or a weekend.
But don't go via Ranchita, the road there drops from 4000 feet to nearly sea level withing a few miles. It was steep and scary for me. Rather go via Banner.
At Borrego Springs the temperature was nice, though they get a lot of wind, similar to Yuma.
