I think you mean Indio... I've never heard of indigo. Indio is in the middle of the desert and abou 15 or 20 miles east of Palm Springs. It is primarily a resort/retirement area and will probably be pretty hot even this time of year. I'd guess high 80's or low 90's but it gets 100+ in the summer regularly. There are a lot of casinos and golf courses out there. There is a cable car that goes to the top of Mt San Gorgonio which might be a decent touristy thing to do out there. I think there are some hiking trails at the top of the mountain. It is interesting to see the difference in climate and ecosystem as you climb in altitude. There is prob still snow on the mountain from the last storm too.
BC is over 1000 miles away. That's a long drive... 2 or 3 days I'm guessing.
