San Jacinto Mountain (Palm Springs)

For Scenic Sunday, here are the last Scenic Sunday post from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway near Palm Springs, California. These shots are all from the top of the tramway, elevation 8,516 feet (2,596 m), far above the desert floor.
There was still snow up there, even in March.
And despite being only a couple of hours drive from Los Angeles, it was easy to believe that you were in the wilderness.
The Tramway is a ride well worth taking.

  4. Oh, Al--these photos are so beautiful. I'm so sorry to have been out of touch so long. I'm getting back into it now. After losing years of photography I just lost heart for a bit.

    But I'm back now, and I so appreciate your encouraging comments about my kitty cats. lol They are such cuties--Our dear Toez the Polydactyl Cat is the bane of our existence--and also at the same time fills the house with laughter at her antics.

    ((hugs)) Thanks again for dropping by. I've missed you.
