It’s begins in Palm Springs, and it’s mostly called the Pines to Palms Scenic Byway, and Californian Freeway Drivers wouldn’t believe that a road like this exists. Parts of California Route 74 remind me of Italy. But then, for the most part California isn’t that much like Italy.
This is one time that a manual gearbox is a good idea in California ~ who wants an auto slush-pump anyway?
Should you ever happen to be driving California Route 74, stop at Paradise Corner. They make a great burger and serve a good selection of cool beers. The key to the restroom is a hoot.
If you find yourself here, I guarantee that you will have said hello to a cute biker chick.
