The above pics are of the northern flank of the Bernasconi Trail in MoVal. I got around to the eastern end, but the trail was blocked off, and I didn't feel like hopping a fence just before sunset, especially when a hike up and down a literal hill would have been involved. The views were good enough from there. Bunch of new houses being built, and there are very good views of the surrounding area. The San Gabriels, the San Bernardinos, Box Springs, whatever they call the hills between Mo Val and Redlands, and Mt. San Jacinto can be seen from there (I don't recall getting a pic of that one tho ).

We spent the last 9 days in the IE. Didn't do much. Seemed like we were in traffic on the 60 between Moreno Valley and Jurupa Valley most of the time. Got to the original Del Taco in Barstow finally. Ate at Miguel's Jr. 4 times (bought 9 burritos for the road ). Baker's thrice. Played poker at San Manuel (worst poker room in the world IMO ). Shooters Billiards for the first time in 14 years. Some dive bar in Woodcrest. Went to Tyler Mall and MoVal Mall (karaoke at Round1 for the lolz). Never made it to Corona, or west of Tyler. Never went to OC or LA. Did drive out to Yucaipa/Calimesa for the hell of it, and stopped by the very busy 99c Only store while there.

Briefly pondered moving back, but nah. Going more than once a year is good enough IMO. I enjoyed the unseasonably hot weather though!

You mean between Moreno Valley and Beaumont (on the 60)? If that, then these hills are called the San Timoteo Badlands.

If you mean the other hills that are between Moreno Valley and Redlands, that area is probably the San Timoteo Canyon.

Canyon. I had the pleasure of driving through both of them on the trip.

It depends upon what you are looking for when you say 'Inland Empire' - it's truly enormous. I live in Redlands, which is very beautiful; neighboring Highland and San Bernardino? Yeegh. I just looked it up - the IE encompasses some 4,850 square miles - yup, HUGE! Parts of Riverside are gorgeous; the mountains astounding (you can hike up to Mt Baldy from my folks' house in Upland); and we have ski areas in Big Bear and Arrowhead. That being said, there are as many undesirable areas as there are desirable. Cali politics have exponentially increased the homeless/parolee population, so a lot of us who have lived here most of our lives are looking to get out.

Try searching for Redlands, Riverside, Big Bear, Joshua Tree, and Palm Springs for images. If you are coming for a visit, definitely come in through Ontario airport - I travel a lot and it's one of my favorite, low-key airports.

Joshua Tree and PS are usually not considered to be within the IE, and each are within their own outlying regions. I'm not exactly sure about Big Bear Lake, though (if it's IE or not).

JT and PS aren't IE. JT is HD and PS is CV. But TEHO and YMMV. LOL.
