Palm Springs Tram Ride

As promised last week, here are some shots taken from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It basically ascends up a valley.
To put the scale in perspective, the platform on top of this tower is a helicopter landing pad!
I liked this slightly-cropped complete tower with our tram's shadow beneath on a nearby rock.
The scenery is incredible!
I think this qualifies as a Scenic Sunday post. Next week we'll see some shots from the top of the mountain.


  1. Wonderful shots. This sure is a nice place to visit.

  2. Isn't it amazing? When we went up there was some snow up there -- even tho we'd been in shorts and tshirts down below.

  3. Awesome! I would love to take a ride on that on!! Terrific captures for the day, Al! Hope you have a great weekend! Give Socks a pat for Sam and I!

  8. This looks like an amazing place, tanks so much for sharing these photos. Brilliant as I think it very unlikely I will get to visit there.
