Escape 2013: Escape to L.A. Tour Highlight — Joshua Tree Tour
PCA







Tour highlight: Joshua Tree tour will let you experience the famous roads of the San Gabriel Mountains with a drive up to Big Bear and from there a drive to the Joshua National Park. The park straddles both the Mojave Desert in the north and the Colorado Desert in the south. Joshua Tree has long been an inspiration for rock 'n' roll bands such as the Eagles and the Irish band U2 who named their 1987 album Joshua Tree.

After touring Joshua Tree members of the tour will head to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram for a ride to the top of Mount San Jacinto where one can see the Coachella Valley laid out before you.

Dinner will be in Palm Springs, famous as the winter playground for Hollywood and the Rat Pack.

A simple drive back to the hotel will complete the tour.

Open your mind: Travel back to 1978 and meet the first 928
By Jim Doerr
I grew up in the rich farm country of mid-Michigan. It was a simple life. I remember spending all day at grandma and grandpa's farm, delivering cool lemonade to my father and his dad as they worked the fields. The best part of the day was sitting on the tractor and "playing farmer" when they came back home for grandma's food.
