I have a brother living full-time and parents who are part-time Idyllwild residents.

The San Jacinto Wilderness also is special to me for many years of backpacking in my youth and our marriage proposal 25 years ago.

Our Temecula home has a wonderful view of the vineyards with the mountain beyond.

Your “Breaking News” announcements twice a day helped me keep informed about the condition of my beloved mountain.
