From L.A., the ride to Marion Mountain Campground on I-10 through “The Inland Empire” (aka “Land of Swirling Gases”) is, at best, horrifying. Persevere, though, and head up CA 243 from Banning, and, in a few short minutes, you’ll be in a different world. You’ll come up out of the chaparral into the pines and peaks. What a contrast!
