  1. What a cute little place! I love the little trips that you guys make. You’re so right about seeing the stars without “light pollution”. TC enjoyed seeing the multitude of stars during 6th grade camp a few years back (they went to Camp Marston in Julian). It was exactly as you had described it. NIce dinner you had there too! Homemade is always best!

      Jake’s daughter went to Camp Marston, too. I went to Camp Palomar when I was a kid! His younger son will also get to go to Camp Marston soon since he’ll be in sixth grade this year. It’s such a different seeing the night sky without all the light pollution! I saw a book called “The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light” that I think I want to read – the guy goes on a journey trying to find true darkness and if there’s any place left that still has it.

      I didn’t want us to eat out in Julian that evening since it’s a little um, overpriced in Julian. Homemade was the only choice! 🙂

      • The food choices in Julian aren’t that great either and yeah, totally overpriced. When we were in Manitoulin Island (Canada) last summer, we were amazed by the night sky. It’s pretty undeveloped over there and there were stars EVERYWHERE, like all the way up to the horizon. It was gorgeous and so clear.

          Oh I bet it was so pretty up there! I remember a bit of some pretty sky when I was in Alaska, but I was in the city so it wasn’t as good as possible.
