On the way to our usual fall visit to Arizona, we were excited to fit in a couple of stops along the way to visit some friends. We left Placerville early Sunday to drive straight through to Los Angeles to visit with Lee and Trace who are staying in Burbank. We stayed at the local Elks Lodge for 3 nights. It's a small RV area with W/E for $25.
Thanks guys for dinner! The tacos were delicious!
This one is really cool. It destems herbs. I used it for my Italian Parsley.
Dinner came out good and it went very nicely with the bottle of Valpolicella wine they brought.
We enjoyed their company and were very happy we were able to stop by.
We asked them to bring Jack with them. He's such a sweet boy. He was one of Hurley's buddies.
Pulling out of the Elks Lodge.
Driving along I-10 this beautiful bridge and building come into view. I think it's a Court House but not sure. I know some of you are from this area. Anyone know what it is?
Palm Springs, CA
Palm Springs Resort
They were staying in a nice bungalow with beautiful grounds and pool.
We only had one day so we spent the day taking the tram up to San Jacinto State Park.
The top platform up top sits at 8,516 feet. The park is beautiful and has many hiking trails.

Looking down over Palm Springs from the front viewing platform.
We had a nice lunch then took the tram back down.
The Tram moves very fast. Here's a short video showing it leaving the upper platform.
Marge with Sonny Bono's Star. He used to be the major years ago. If you haven't been to Palm Springs, it's a fun town. There's plenty to do here including nearby Joshua Tree National Park.
The outside tables made for some great people watching.
There were people dressed up in all kinds of outfits. Some classy, some horrible and some funny.
Evening was very pleasant with the warm weather. We had some Gelato and Sorbetto. Thanks Dave and Marge for sharing part of your vacation with us and the ornament and pictures.HERE.
On to Surprise for a short visit with family before heading to the Italian Festival in Reno with more friends who will be cooking in the Sauce Contest.
