It was a pretty good 80 mile drive yesterday, better roads and $2.79/gallon gas. Maybe California isn’t so bad.
I found out about Lake Cahuilla online a few weeks ago and decided we needed to make reservations since there weren’t many sites left. Glad we did. It is a busy place and a nice enough park. The surrounding area is beautiful, lots of palm trees, gated subdivisions, and bike lanes everywhere. Looks like a great place to spend a week. We’re about 25 miles from Palm Springs at the base of the Santa Rosa mountains.
And they honor Passport America on weekdays, so we are paying either $10 or $20/night depending on the day of the week. Still quite a bargain for a water and electric site in California. Unfortunately all the pretty sites on the lake were taken.
But best of all, it got to 75 yesterday afternoon. Had to change into shorts as soon as we arrived. And the sunset was lovely.
