Palm Springs Tramway

Last week, I took Natalie to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to celebrate our anniversary. Here are some of our favorite photos…

Here’s a view from the base of the tram station. It’s one of the steepest tramway ascents in the world, rising almost 6,000 ft. over a span of 2.5 miles.

Halfway up, we are met by a tram descending on the other side of the cable.

We had a beautiful view looking to the east, over the Coachella Valley and Salton Sea 30 miles away.

We took a nature hike up at the top and some some pretty wildflowers still in bloom. This one is lupine.

Standing at this outlook on the Desert View Trail, we could hear a waterfall and caught this magnificent view of the foothills leading into the San Jacinto mtn. range.
