California Bucket List: Strange vibrations near Joshua Tree, monarch butterflies, startling urban archaeology and a new adventure each day

Reader recommendation: Paulina's Mexican Grill a filling stop before Vegas

Instead of eating at a fast-food place on the way to Las Vegas, Paulina's Mexican Grill in Victorville is a nice place to stop and get a meal. It is run by Paulina and her mom. Their description is accurate: "The place to come to enjoy true home-made Mexican food as if you were in your own home." The food is served promptly too. It is about two blocks from Interstate 15.

Paulina's Mexican Grill, 14845 Monarch Blvd., Suite G, Victorville; (760) 955-2661,
