Palm Springs Aerial Tramway + Mount San Jacinto

 

To get here, we left the city and drove two hours to the middle of no where in 100f degree heat. Then, we drove virtually straight up hill for about half an hour before we parked our car where a shuttle picked us up to take us to the tram station. The station is situated in Sonoran Desert.
