Sunrise Highway

Couple things…

1. I adore my iphone. I spent a buttload (is that one word? butt-load. butt load. buttload.) of money on it because my other phone got ripped out of my smashed car window and I needed a phone immediately and finally decided to get into the real world where iphones lived. And have never. looked. back. If I paid $1,500 for it, I’d still say it was worth it. (I didn’t pay that much. For the record.)

2. I took a day trip to Sunrise Highway this weekend and took a butt-load of cloud pictures on my awesome not-new-anymore-but-haven’t-dropped-it-yet iphone!

See why it was important to tell you how much I love my iphone? I never edit pictures for you, folks. I don’t even use a real camera. I just whip out my trusty, gorgeous iphone and snap, snap away. Mainly because I’m lazy. But awesome that the iphone takes some rad pictures.

I just said awesome and rad in the same sentence. Yikes. Sorry about that (no I’m not).

Sunrise Highway is just past Julian off Hwy 79, for those of you who don’t live in San Diego. It goes up into Mount Laguna, and the views are so unbelievable. You can see Arizona from these lookout points. ARIZONA. You gaze across the Salton Sea into Arizona. Crazy! And the clouds on Saturday were just epic. You’ll see in a minute, calm down. But first…this shirt.

I went into one of the funky stores in little Julian. The girl behind the counter was about eighteen, had a country accent (you know the kind of accent Reese Witherspoon got back in Sweet Home Alabama after she was back in her hometown for all of one day? That kind), and showed me this shirt. “Isn’t it great? I wanted to buy it for my boyfriend for so long but then finally his mom bought it for him and every day after work I dress him up in it and we take old-timey pictures of him in it!” Um…what? First of all, you’re from Julian? Where in the world did you pick up an accent? Second…did you see that shirt? Thirdly: Old-timey pictures?! Poor boyfriend. Yikes.

I was totally digging the rest of the stuff in the store, though. Especially these pig heads. I wanted to buy one so bad.

Okay, now onto the clouds.

So there ya go. Lots of cloud pictures. I have about 80 of them I didn’t put in here, so consider yourself lucky. I hear the camping up there is epic, too. Next time I have a hankering for wearing pink plaid shirts with snaps whilst camping (and taking old-timey pictures, apparently), I’m heading here!
