Here, our bikes forced us to take a pie break at the town of Julian (they’ve been working hard). It surprises me to see how large this town looks on a map when it is essentially a town full of pie shops! Some highlights today are the kindness of the firefighters at the firestation where we camped last night, insanely painful and slow hills, pie and ice cream, and the hope for the mountains to end one day (here’s to hoping!). Apparently there’s a desert campground in our future. We keep pedaling somehow!
