I've fallen WAY behind on my blogging but I'm determined to catch up.
These first pictures are from an afternoon spent roaming downtown S.D. with our friend Stan while he was visiting a couple of weeks ago.
The rest of these were taken a few days later in Julian, a picturesque mountain town east of S.D. We went to a kitschy Western-themed restaurant for some famous Julian pie.
On our drive back, we passed through an area that still shows the scars of wildfires that burned large swaths of the region in 2003.
