Descanso, CA (Jan 5th - 10th), 2011

On our way south to San Diego area, we camped overnight at the Santa Fe RV Park in California.  It was a very nice, clean park; however, it was right next to the I-5 expressway.  We then arrived at our destination, another one of our member parks, Thousand Trails in Descanso, CA.   We were out to try all of our membership parks and this was on the way to San Diego.    We had a great campsite -- kind of seclusive but picturesque.   The weather was cool the first couple of days and started warming up the last day we were there.  While there we visited the town of Alpine, the Viejas Outlet Mall/Village (Indian Reservation) which was outside and very nicely landscraped with boulders and waterfalls and an ice skating rink which was used for the holidays and they were now taking down.  Then we discovered the town of Julian.  What a quaint little town that was known for their "apple pies".  One of the people we met at a pancake breakfast in the Township Hall of Descanso told us to make sure we had a piece of pie.  We didn't stop for a piece of pie -- we bought a whole pie and it was so delicious.   We tried to walk Buddy at the area State Park but dogs were not allowed but he liked hiking up the mountain with Jason back at camp.  Down the road 79 we stopped at a stand where there were wood carvings, fruits, vegetables, homemade jerky, jams and just about anything you would find at a farmers market. Some of the very best jams and jerky we've ever had. Not bad for these locals.  It was called Pam's Place.  It was time to move on closer to San Diego to another membership park!!!!!!
