We've been wanting to take the kids up in the Palm Springs Aerial Tram for a while. Last time we did this was before kids. I'm happy to say, I'm in such better shape now. I kicked butt on the trail, so happy to be healthy. It was a blast. These are in random order. Basically, you began in Palm Springs and travel up the mountain 8500 feet. We packed a lunch and hiked around for a few hours. Snow ball fights, and great family memories. Enjoy!
I'd highly recommend this family outing. The kids and adults both had a blast. We gall got our nature fix and some exercise to boot! Looking forward to doing this one again!
|the ride is fast and rotates very slowly|
|on our way up, it's a quick 10-15 minutes in the tram to go up the mountain|
|the trails-make sure to get your nature permit, the rangers are on the trails and check|
|we did the round valley loop|
|we found snow-snow it=s a big deal to my beach kids|
|we're all great hikers now, the kids can totally keep up with us|
|the tram up close-it holds about 80 people|
|almost to the top|
|the ride up is fast, and the car spins twice on your way up|
|a fallen tree-beauty everywhere|
|more snow, the kids loved throwing snowballs at each other|
|this is the building we started at in the distance|
|couldn't decide if this was nature or man made|
