We have an insane calling to be where we aren't

Palm Springs Tram and Mount San Jaacinto State Park

Rising 8500 feet above the desert floor, the Palm Springs Tramway offers access to hiking in this famous San Jacinto state park wilderness. Since it was our last day and the sun was shining, we decided why not.
 
The floor of the tram rotates as it ascends the mountain.




It was such a perfect day that I couldn't believe my pictures were fuzzy. I had hit a button changing something and this how they ended up.

Our hike was peaceful since few people ventured off through the snow to the hiking path.


After a hike in the sunshine and cool air, lunch!

The tram ride was steeper than those we had ridden in Switzerland.


I tried to get my hair trimmed on what turned out to be Senior Thursday at a Supercuts. Life lesson learned on the road. They line up down the block to save those $3.  Mike thought someone might be scalping Superbowl tickets.
It was a good end to our visit even if we were both sick part of the time. We got out and did some of the things we hoped to.
