Summers in the desert

It's very hot during the summer there - can be 115 degrees or so. I actually stayed at Casa del Zorro in July.  The days are very hot so you'll likely want to stay indoors, but the nights are warm and pleasant.  If going in summer I recommend taking a star gazing outing or class with Dennis Mammana. 

Spring is the best season with the wild flowers, and of cousre in winter it's a haven for snowbirds from all over.
