Yogi Picnic Baskets
I was scrolling through some photos from last year on my phone and stumbled across this one.
We visit Julian, CA at least once a year, typically in the fall - it's a former gold mining town (there are still mines you can tour) in the Cayumaca Mountains about 60 miles inland from Carlsbad.
We enjoy lunch at the Julian Grill, and always stop to buy apples at a local fruit stand (we haven't actually gone apple picking there for some time) and a Julian Pie. My fave is the Peach Apple Crumb but they are all pretty good - I know coz I've tried them.
I spied this great sign and had to snap a photo. Alas, Yogi Picnic Baskets was not open while we were there - it would have been fun to explore and perhaps buy something. Their website offers some pretty nice picnic baskets, wine and cheese baskets, backpacks, picnic accessories and more.
"Hey, Hey, Hey" I expect a few of you remember Yogi Bear and his side-kick (and often his conscience) Boo-Boo. Yogi was "smarter than the average bear," or so he believed. And he was always crafting plans to steal pic-a-nic baskets in Jellystone Park, much to the chagrin of Ranger Smith. Remember?
