Anyways - we decided to take a trip to the small village of Idyllwild up in the higher country to get into some cooler weather and it was cooler up there at an elevation of over 5000 feet, at least 20-25 degrees, but it was quite pleasant and pretty. We walked around and looked at all the touristy shops. It's a very little town with some beautiful scenery.
Here is a view of the peaks from a little on further up the mountain.
Then we headed back down to the desert floor into the heat.
We traveled back to Tucson on Friday, and have been enjoying a quiet weekend at home getting ready to get back to reality on Monday. All in all it was a good time, ate a bit too much great food, probably drank a little bit too much great wine but enjoyed every minute of it.
