California people, please read this.

I don't know much about the geography of California but here goes..

I'm flying into Ontario, driving down to Palm Desert Springs, spending 2 days there. On Monday, I have all day to kill driving back from Palm Desert Springs north to Ontario, my flight back to NYC isn't until midnight. SO! Last year we drove through Joshua Tree NAtional Park and smoked a bunch of joints there on our way back but I was wondering if anyone could suggest any other natural sights worth checking out? How close is Death Valley to PDS?

I will consider this suggestion.

Yeah I tried that Meaty but I literally don't have the time to like, research for it.  I was just hoping someone would be able to point to something particular.  THanks though.

Too bad you won't be going through Big Sur, I think you'd like that part of Cali.

I had some friends that lived there, I have seen tons of pictures and met a few of the 'locals'. They tell me That it started with one guy and one business, and now he owns almost everything in Big Sur, it's like his own town, and he houses and puts all the hippies to work. That's what I heard, I don't know how true it is. But it's beatiful, and only 45 min from the beach.

I heard about the Death Valley rain thing, there's even a lake there. How far is the drive from Palm Desert Springs to Death Valley, and then from there to ONtario? Is it really out of the way. We'd be willing to get a somewhat early start on Monday, like around 11, but we have to be at the Ontario airport by like 10.

think of ontario, coachella and deathvalley to be three points on a
right triangle pointing left (if that makes sense)

coachella is the bottom point, death valley is the top and ontario
is the western (left) point.

it would probably take you about 2 hours to get to DV from palm
dessert and then another 1.5 from death valley to ontario.

bwahahaha...

you don't just SWING by san fran when you've only
got an extra day to spare and you're in Palm Dessert.

unless you're talking about some other SF, in which
case you need to stop because san fran is the only
city that can be called SF, iMho and "m" "o" is the....
