    My buddy JD and I hit the Ocotillo area on Saturday - Thought you'd all enjoy the pictures.

    180 miles covered - Beautiful evening!

    Growing up I can't remember a 3 day weekend my parents didn't take us out to Ocotillo area for some great desert running fun! Haven't been out there in years though. Need to swing by the oyster beds and say "Hey" to my grandmother.

    I noticed the pic of main street in Julian. Have you ever been to Quinn Knives or the Falcon Gallery? My aunt owns both of those stores. My late uncle George was Quinn Knives...he use to make everything by hand til he became too sick and passed a bunch of years back.

    Anyways... Looks like it was a nice ride! Thanks for sharing!

    I've been in the gallery but haven't visited Quinn's - I'll have to check it out. :)
