Hutchins Harley Davidson Diner: Don't Let The Harley's Scare You Off
This Diner is actually part of a Harley Davidson Dealership. Look at bikes, get hungry, step into the Diner. They serve Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. It's a classic
diner with the typical hotcakes, burgers and stuff. What is cool, is the decorations, all Harley Items. Oh, the names of the meals, all taken from the motorcycle line. It's a cool place to eat, and the prices are fair.Related to:

Yucca Valley Warnings and Dangers
This Is The High Desert
Remember, your in the desert in Yucca Valley.
Bring plenty of water on your outdoor activity.
When hiking, turn back when your water is half gone.Use Sun Block. Watch for Rattlesnakes.Do Not, I repeat DO NOT feed the coyotees.This makes them lose their natural instinct to hunt.They then get hit by cars as they stand in the road begging for food.
Also, remember that when it rains in the mountains, the valleys will quickly fill with water.On a recent trip in August 2003, four people in a car died while trying to cross a flooded wash.
Yucca Valley Favorites
Thunder, Lightening, And Rain
Favorite thing: My favorute thing about Yucca, wouldn't appeal to anyone else. She has bruises and sores, and some scaring. She's dirty, doesn't wash to often, but when she does she emeges squeaky clean. What I'm talking about is the desert around Yucca Valley. My last trip, I couldn't explore, I had the wrong vehicle. But the desert is cool to me, more of a place than just to drive off road. It's full of life.
Fondest memory: Most missed about Yucca, the feeling I get whn I leave to come home. It's like taking a weight off my shoulders, I can be me again.
I used to miss the good prices for gas, but now it's cheaper where I live. The stores there are the same as my hometown, but the traffic in yucca valley is getting worse. I miss the open roads and freedom to move about. It's by no means crowded there, it's just more people go there and live there than they did the first time I visited four years ago.
