This pic was taken from Highway 243 heading up the mountain toward Idyllwild, looking back down on the town of Banning with Mt. San Gorgonio in clouds in the background.  Mt. San Gorgonio, also known as “Old Greyback”, is the highest mountain in Southern California at 11,502 ft.  Banning was named for Phineas Banning, stagecoach line owner and the “Father of the Port of Los Angeles”.
