    Ya get your head examined....lol It is running around 107 now it will be about 112 or better by then.

    I'd stick to Agua Calliente the casino down there and air conditioning...but if you must. Morongo Casino and hey they have the fabulous outlet malls there.

    Sincerely though something scenic in August would honestly suggest you do that shuttle thing clear up the mountain side. It is a tram and that would really be a great thing to do since it is cooler up above. It is on the eastern side of Palm Springs as you enter off the first 10 exit. Everyone knows it. That is a great way for scenery.

    If you must go into the famous Yucca Desert close to there you better make sure you take lots of water and follow the guide suggestions. Its drivable it is very close to the marine base at 29 Palms, use to go there all the time. August is absolutely the worst time of year to try this. Just being honest.
