PCT near Scissors Crossing

Day 5

Starting from Chariot Canyon, we hiked 15 miles to scissors crossing. We were lucky enough to find our 13 year old friend "Oblivious" and his Dad who gave us a ride into town (Julian). Julian is a very nice little touristy town which has over 5 pie stores! Apples are king here and we indulged at "Moms Pies"with a slice. We stayed at the Julian Lodge which claims to be the oldest hotel in Southern California. It is a B&B and the innkeepers were generous and gave us two rooms at 1/2 price. We cleaned up (a considerable undertaking) -- and the housekeeper even washed our clothes for us! Had a nice Mexican dinner and a beer -- this hiking stuff does have its pleasures. We saw Gordon again in town -- nice to have familiar and friendly faces show up. We're headed out of town tomorrow -- but waiting until 3:00pm or so so we can give Scissors crossing a climb when it's not scorching.
