Now you tell me! We've already moved ourselves to the desert and back out again. Very beautiful scenery, but the area just wasn't us. We're more Northern California types.

What did you like/dislike about it if you don't mind my asking?
I think it's beautiful too, but long for more trees and cooler weather. Not sure how long it will take, but hope to move someday.

Does anyone know anything about Idyllwild? I used to love it, but I don't know if it has been ruined, or
is still nice.

Idyllwild is still absolutely gorgeous. I love that town. It's my relief from the heat here in La Quinta during the summer. I was just there about 2 weeks ago. I walked around all the shops downtown, and that bar-be-que restaurant was playing some live 70's music. Good times.

I agree Karla, Idyllwild is great and is still a quaint small town just about an hour drive from the desert. We too go up there every summer--rent a house for August--and enjoy the summertime away from the heat. We lived in Colorado years ago and it reminds us a lot of that. We are really fortunate to live so close to mountains and trees here in the desert...and we are only two hours from the beach as well. Not every location has allows a person to enjoy so many climates in such a short amount of time.

I cannot recall the exact day/month/year that I first set eyes on Rancho Mirage...but let us say 1972.....I stopped at a little gasoline station/full serve,I believe and if you know anything about our deserts back then......there was a hush of quiet and solitude.If you are old enough ,you can remember few people..a car once in awhile...the awesome sun..majestic mountains and lack of humidity.
On a tip from a gent..we drove our rental car up Pinyon Crest Drive with hope that we would catch a glimpse of Frank Sinatra ,who around that time had moved there because of the pollution and poor air quality of LA. I got out of the car halfway or more up this road when my then wife spotted a helipad or something with binoculars.It was August I think...but I love dry heat and felt no monsoon affect....but anyway....a late model sedan started the very long trip down the driveway to the fence to keep mere mortals like us out.We waited and watched for what seemed like an eternity.Two large men stepped out of the car,very slowly......"yous lost or sompun?" the ITALIAN AMERICAN MAN ASKED? his expensive suit flapping in the wind."NO,I WAS HOPING TO GET A GLIMPSE OF MY HERO MR.S" I said. "WE CAN'T SAY KID,BUT I THINK YOUS ARE TRESPASSIN YOU KNOW?"
Being an Irish/Italian AMERICAN,I feel that I was ok letting anyone who reads this let me poke fun at the way my Mom's side of the family spoke/speak.
I do know that Rancho Mirage has grown and it saddens,I do not like change or crowds.
