Idyllwild offers visitors taste of four seasonsWhile living in or visiting Southern California, a trip to the mountains is closer than you might think. The San Jacinto range offers a stark contrast to the warm, arid climate just a few miles away and, for that reason, places like Idyllwild have become popular getaways for people who want a taste of the four seasons.
Not too much of a taste, mind you. This is all about putting that four-wheel-drive through its paces just enough to justify the couple of grand extra that you spent on it. The fact is Southern California residents, for the most part, don't need four-wheel drive.
