Welcome to mJG MohaveKid!!!!!
Or how they say in the islands, howzit, brah.
If you have not done so yet, go to www.jgarden.org
and type in 96818 in the zip code search. Should pull up a few gardens to explore.
After a long day chasing your zen around, if you want a less touristy, old school vibe to imbibe in an adult beverage or two (with a killer sunset if you time it right), try La Mariana, the last of the real tiki bars. Way off the beaten path but well worth it. You may not get another chance, it may not be around for long.
Eat a lot of tako poke for me, my favorite.
My choice of sunshine this year is not Hawaii so I look forward to your pics. When you get back, we can talk story.
