A year after a wildfire tore through the California Wolf Center, the program to increase the number of endangered Mexican gray wolves is making a recovery. Four wolves, including a female Mexican gray wolf, were killed in the July 2002 fire in the hills east of San Diego after a California National Guard helicopter clipped a power line. Fewer than 300 Mexican gray wolves are known to exist. Since the fire, the center has received $75,000 in donations, said Pat Valentino, executive director.

On their last leg of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail on Wednesday, the two brothers thumbed a ride into Julian to eat a gloriously greasy meal, have a beer and load up on provisions. But the historic town, with its wood-porch storefronts and wagon wheel decor, was a veritable ghost town, with no power, no phones, no water, few people. Having receiving only snippets of news during the Canada-to-Mexico trek, they were flabbergasted -- and crestfallen.

Fire crews made progress Sunday in containing wildfires near Big Bear Lake and the historic town of Julian in San Diego County that had forced thousands of people from their homes, but officials said both fires remained dangerous. As of Sunday evening, the blaze near Big Bear, called the Butler 2 fire, had burned 15,433 acres in the San Bernardino National Forest and was 12% contained, said U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Jocelyn Holt.

In a matter of weeks, this historic gold-mining town will usher in something few of its 1,300 residents seem to want: Fast food. And it will come, it appears, in exchange for something the town desperately needs: Water. Before long, two new franchises, Dairy Queen and Subway Sandwiches, will open in Julian, an apple-growing center nestled in the Cuyamaca Mountains about 65 miles northeast of San Diego.

"MY wife and I just spent our wedding anniversary at the Observer's Inn, outside of Julian (west of San Diego). The reason to go is for the tour through the heavens by way of several telescopes. Last night, we saw Saturn so clearly that the separation in the rings was discernible. We saw Jupiter with two of its colored bands and four of its moons strung like pearls against the black sky." Doubles from $158. Observer's Inn, 3535 Highway 79, Julian, CA 92036; (760) 765-0088, www.

Julian, Calif., once a gold-mining boom town in San Diego's pristine backcountry, is a popular getaway destination. Only about 4,200 people live in the town and the surrounding hills and desert. The newest lodging, Orchard Hill Country Inn, opened last year with guest rooms that have wet bars, refrigerators and VCRs with complimentary videotapes. Some rooms have whirlpools or fireplaces.

With autumn officially ushered in this week, Julian has come alive with the flavors of fall. Fruit lovers can sink their teeth into not only the crisp, locally grown apples, but pears as well. While Apple Days festivities, held each weekend in October, highlight the apple harvest, farmers also sell other seasonal fruits and their byproducts, such as pears and pear butter. Bartlett pears, also known as "summer pears," are the most popular and should be available through November.

Will COMBO continue to be the City of San Diego's umbrella organization for granting money to many arts groups? A city manager's report on that recurring topic will be delivered to the council's Public Services and Safety Committee today. Among its recommendations are the makeup and discussion areas for a task force to study the matter. Questions were raised a month ago in the committee about the suitability of COMBO.

The observatory on Palomar Mountain is a magnet for astronomers--internationally famous for its Hale Telescope. And I'd always thought of Julian, nestled between the neighboring Volcan and Cuyamaca mountains, in terms of apple pie and great motorcycle roads. That is, until the Comet Hale-Bopp led me to a stargazer's dream getaway: Observer's Inn. Last year, after chasing through San Diego County's back roads to photograph the comet, I stumbled into Julian as the sun rose.
