Eight Thousand Feet and Counting

So I managed to take around 400 pictures while we were in California for three and a half days, which means I have way more photos to share! This could turn into a five part series if I’m not careful.

We went up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which goes up to the top of Mt. San Jacinto (elevation 8,516 feet). In general, it’s usually 20 degrees cooler at the top than it is in the city, so everyone brings sweatshirts. I could also feel myself getting winded kind of quickly, which we will also blame on the elevation, and not the fact that I haven’t been to the gym in a few months.

As the great Emily Henderson would say, “I’m a giant!”

A little bit of the NW in PS.

Proof that you can get reception at the top.
