Then, it was off to the visitor center for the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, where Dan pumped the staff for lots of information about backcountry hikes and things to do (he's excited to do some backpacking this winter).
And now we're back at the room enjoying half-off ahi poke from fresh&easy - just $4! - along with a few gallons of water. Eventually, we'll head on out again to find some date shakes and maybe a nice air conditioned movie theater. Oh, and I suppose I should go look at Palm Springs. I haven't been since the 1970s - I hear it's changed?
