I got back last week on a 5 day trip over the holidays to visit family. Driving out of my way and taken random turns up a winding mountain road I came across a most lovely town called Idyllwild. It’s got to be one of the “grooviest”, most heart warming places I’ve been to. Here are some photos I took:
Having spent the day there it’s easy to see that the majority of the residents are artisans or “creative types” and other folk just looking for a warm community to live in.Lots of neat and unexpected shops including restaurants like GastroGnome and stores like Lady of the Lake Soaps. It felt like a little nordic hippy town that has escaped some of the hustle and bustle of the world below. The people were incredibly friendly and ‘different’, even exceptional in their funky spark. There were many dome houses and other alternative types of architecture there. My family and I are seriously considering moving there once we complete our current work.
