      I spent a lot of time working in Hemet so the idyllwild loop is a familiar and awesome drive. Palomar mountain was decent but there was a lot of slow traffic clogging it up and I hear that on Sundays...

      Ditto on almost all points. How could I forget the "cake face"? Too much makeup is a huge no-no.
