Idyllwild is a rustic village nestled in the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs. Many people from Los Angeles come up here to hike and relax because it’s only about 2 1/2 hours away. Idyllwild has four seasons, including winter with pretty snow, and lots of wild animals–deer, raccoons, squirrels, bobcats and mountain lions. Of the 3,000 residents who live here, many are fantastic artists who don’t get much publicity. So this blog, Idyllwild Me, is really about them, the artists and animals in Idyllwild. Hope you enjoy their stories.
