Day 3 - Camarillo, CA 5/15

I left Palm Springs this morning at 9:00, and it was already 87 degrees.  Climbed out of the desert valley on this wonderful twisty road that rose for 50 miles until I was in Idylwild at about 5,000 feet.  You gained elevation so quickly that your ears popped every couple of minutes;  the road is called the Pines to Palms Highway.  I had breakfast on the patio of the first restaurant I came to in Idylwild at 10:00 in the beautiful 70 degree weather.

Continued on up over the mountains before dropping 4,000 feet down back into the vally on the other side.
