Hemet, California – Snow in southern California

Joerg can weld some small matters in Steve’s workshop during Virginia fattens us with poached eggs for breakfast, rich sandwiches for lunch, and chilli beans in the evening. Travis works hard to finish his pick-up truck for our excursion in the afternoon. We go on an off-road trail into the San Jacinto Mountains to more than 6500 ft / 2000 m elevation where it is exceptionally chilly compared to the lowlands and where still snow lies. The artists’ town Idyllwild is a pretty although expensive mountain resort with well developed touristic infrastructure. We go up through dense high forest that promises cooling even in summer to the foot of the 8000+ ft / 2500 m high Tahquitz or Lily Rock, a lone standing granite rock formation that’s popular among hikers and climbers.
