Highway 74 running west out of Palm Springs is a terrific little stretch of highway - the 'two-lane twisties' of song and fable.
Yeah, too many motor homes, too many trailier-hauling pick-ups, too many gawking tourists in their Sebring convertibles.
And, according to my local host, too many cops!
At the top, there's an odd collection of what seems like about a hundred mail boxes, testimony to the fact that a LOT of people actually live up in them thar hills.
But the US Postal Service isn't gonna risk their staff running into rattlesnakes or other varmints while on their 'appointed rounds'
If 'You Got Mail', you're gonna have to come out here and pick it up.
