Highway 74, Palm Springs

January 2016:  On our last weekend in the Palm Springs area we drove from Palm Springs to Idyllwild through Banning, to highway 243, and then to highway 74- the Pines to Palms Highway, returning to Palm Springs.  We encountered several climates on the way from desert,  through mountain passes, snow, wooded areas, and then along roads cut through rock.  Jim enjoyed the twists and turns of the road- me not so much.  On highway 74, just before descending to the valley through numerous switchbacks there is a lookout viewing the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains.
