Yesterday was a warm day, so we decided to the take the tram up to the peak of San Jacinto state park wilderness. I wouldn’t say I have a fear of heights, of course, I do, but it’s not my favorite thing. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world’s largest rotating tram car. It revolves as it ascends to 8516 feet elevation. Such white-knuckled fun:)
I wore my sun hat which was insane because I needed a ski hat and warm clothes. Luckily this hat travels well. I folded it in half, rolled it into a cone, then put it into my tote.
The ride up was amazing, and the views were stunning.
We traveled up with a group of tourists who loved to squeal each time the tram swayed. Just what my nerves needed. By the time we got to the top, I was freezing! Luckily, I’d packed this light jacket in my now critical tote bag. How did I survive life without a tote bag?
The west facing decks were closed because of strong winds. The east facing decks offered amazing views of the entire valley.We wandered around for several hours soaking up the amazing scenery then headed back down. I swear the ride down seemed much faster, but it could have been my imagination.
Tomorrow we’re heading to Rancho Mirage to do some shopping and scope out a famous vintage consignment shop.
Do you shop in vintage shops? How about consignment shops?
