California is a land of vistas. Many grand vistas. Mountains along the coast. A broad, flat central valley. Mountains along the eastern side of the state. No shortage of places to go up and look down. The highway between Palm Desert and Hemet, the Palms to Pines Highway (CA State Route 74), offers a number of exceptional photographic opportunities. Climbing out of the desert and heading west over the pass to Hemet you are greeted with a beautiful vista that seems to embrace the Pacific Ocean far to the west. Take it in the next time you’re in town.
