I guess it’s only me who thinks it’s cold around here. The man in the campsite across from us is walking around in shorts, sandals, and no shirt. Could I take a moment right now to just say, eww? Please put your shirt back on, this is not the beach.
Yesterday was sunny and gorgeous. We wanted a change of scene from the film festival so drove the Palms to Pines Scenic Highway into the mountains.
I wore big sunnies, a white shirt, blue jeans, sneakers and a layering jacket/vest. Not my usual outfit, but comfy and perfect for an adventure.
The narrow twisty road climbs rapidly giving gorgeous views of the valley below. It also causes white knuckles and nausea if you tend towards motion sickness.
The mountains are covered with Oak trees, scrub and desert palms. We spotted the occasional car that had overshot a turn and flown off the road so I kept my eyes glued to the highway.
We stopped at Indian Vista Outlook to get a safer look at the views. I wish we’d brought binoculars! The views went on forever.
I was really glad I wore my Skechers. They’re one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own and give great traction on rocks.
The Highway goes for 130 miles, running between Idyllwild and Palm Desert. We only drove about half of it, then turned and headed back for Palm Desert. I’ve never been overly fond of the desert. This vacation is changing my mind!
My entire outfit is from Chadwicks of Boston. They are in the last days of a huge clearance sale until January 20th, Now is the time to snap up some amazing values.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
Thank you to Chadwicks for sponsoring this post. They supplied the jacket; all words are my own.
