Side Trips and Interesting Day Trips from the Palm Springs Area
Palms to Pines Scenic Byway
A scenic drive that takes you from the desert floor into the mountains and back again.
Many films were made here in the 1950s. Today you can watch gunfight re-enactments on weekends April through October.
It's one of the desert's weirdest features, an inland sea created during a flood. With no streams coming in and none going out, it's now saltier than the ocean, home to hardy creatures and one of the "fastest" lakes anywhere, making it great for boating.
