Southern California & the Great Outdoors

• The mid-century modern architecture in Palm Springs
• Pick a clear morning to visit Keys View in the Joshua Tree National Park for a sweeping panorama
• Even if you’re not a skier, you can take advantage of Mammoth Mountain’s gondola, which climbs to the mountain’s summit for jaw-dropper views of surrounding high-altitude peaks
