On Labor Day April, William, and I loaded up the car and headed into the interior to explore the IE. Our first stop was Hadley’s, which is basically the world capitol of dried fruit. We loaded up on trial mix, dried papayas, and chocolate covered pretzels to fuel our adventure (in retrospect the chocolate covered pretzels were a poor choice for an expedition into the desert).
Next we explored the date farms and back roads of the Coachella Valley.
On the way home we took the scenic route through the mountains to Idyllwild.
