Idyllwild, California: Four Seasons the San Jacinto Mountains
Snowy peaks dot the horizon in winter and brisk breezes blow in spring and autumn in Idyllwild. When you consider the fact that Idyllwild lies just an hour’s drive from the blistering California desert, snow can be a surprising sight.
The city’s unique position in the San Jacinto Mountains makes it a superb destination for both relaxing and adventuring in the outdoors.
