While traveling down Tollgate, a vehicle was stopped ahead for no apparent reason. Ahh … but the reason soon appeared when mom, pop, aunt, uncle and all the babies in the “Tollgate Quail Family” crossed the road.

In the city, pedestrians are frequently ignored as they attempt to cross the street. But in Idyllwild, quail, deer, squirrels and other living things are treated with respect and common courtesy. Only in Idyllwild.
