Living Desert Zoo & Gardens

The botanical gardens of this park offer great opportunities to see desert vegetation.

Cabazon Dinosaurs

The World's Biggest Dinosaurs™ museum is an educational adventure featuring work from scientists around the world.  Our desire is to help the young and old explore what is known and not known about dinosaurs, man and the creation of the world in a practical, factual and fun way. Mr. Rex's  museum will fascinate the young and adult with interesting information on the origins of dinosaurs and man.  The T-Rex Museum was built nearly 30 years ago and towers 4 stories.  Adults and children can make the climb to the top for a magnificent view out Mr. Rex's teeth.  From the Interstate Highway, the uncommon view of two giant dinosaurs, on an arid plain surrounded by mountains, is an irresistible magnet. But tourists are not the only ones compelled to stop. Well within a convenient day-drive of the Los Angeles sphere, the Cabazon Dinosaurs are media darlings appearing often in commercials, music videos, film and print ads.   The dinosaurs were built over 30 years ago. The apatosaurus (formely known as the brontosaurus) took eleven years to build and is the biggest dinosaur in the world.  The belly of Dinny hosts an awesome store with something for everyone.   The T-Rex, affectionately known as "Mr. Rex", took seven years to build. 

Hauser Geode Beds

 The Hauser Geode Beds are located south west of Blythe off of Interstate 10 and then Wiley's Well Road South.  It takes about 1 hour from Blythe to get there.  About 30 minutes on paved road and then 30 minutes on dirt road. Known to rock hounds for many years, the Hauser geode beds have produced some very beautiful geodes of varied types. Some geodes are lined with amethyst crystals, others have white or black calcite crystals . A geode is a sphere shaped rock which contains a hollow cavity lined with crystals. A geode which is completely filled with small compact crystal formations such as agate or jasper is called a nodule or Thunder Egg. The Hauser Geode Beds were discovered in 1937 by Joel Hauser, a Blythe Native. As there were no roads in the Black Hills area, Mr. Hauser used his Model A Ford that he paid $37.50 for to explore this region.  One day while trying to drive around the Black Hills the Hauser beds was discovered.  There are several areas to find geodes in, the Hauser beds, the Straw beds and the Potato Patch, for details on exact locations see the maps.

Shoe Fence

Rice became noted for its Rice Shoe Tree, a lone tamarisk on a turnout just south of the highway. For reasons unknown, it became customary for travelers on Highway 62 (also known as Rice Road) to and from the Colorado River to hang an old shoe on the tree's branches. The tree was featured on California's Gold, a PBS program hosted by Huell Howser. The tree burned to the ground in 2003 in a fire of suspicious origin, after which a 'shoe garden' replaced it; a fence on which people hang shoes instead. Travelers still stop to spell their names on the nearby Arizona and California Railroad right-of-way with the multi-colored volcanic rock used as ballast. Hand-assembled graffiti lines the railroad for the entire distance that it parallels Highway 62.

small prices, big memories

The campground is a single loop through a stand of mature cedars, Ponderosa pine, oaks, and a variety of other conifers. This overstory of trees provides lots of shade for the camp sites.

Mt. San Jacinto State Park

Magnificent granite peaks

The deeply weathered summit of Mount San Jacinto stands 10,834 feet above sea level, and is the second highest mountain range in Southern California. No more than a two hour drive from either Los Angeles or San Diego, the mountain's magnificent granite peaks, subalpine forests, and fern-bordered mountain meadows offer a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy a scenic, high-country wilderness area. The park offers two drive-in campgrounds near the town of Idyllwild. Most of the park is a designated wilderness area enjoyed by hikers and backpackers.
