Winter wonderland

At 4,220 feet above sea level, the old gold mine town of Julian, Calif., is one of the highest communities in San Diego County. Snow falls there several times each winter, sometimes as deep as three feet.

We spent the afternoon roaming Julian's touristy main street just hours after the season's first snowfall. With temperatures rising above freezing, much of the white stuff there had already melted.

We scored brunch at the Julian American Legion Hall, shown above.

It was all you-can-eat eggs, sausage, biscuits, potato and wheat pancakes, and sausage gravy for $6.
