My son took this photo while we were on the Aerial Tramway. #USAF bound #ProudMama
San Jacinto Peak is easily accessible, as many trails penetrate the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. The most popular route starts with a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway from Valley Station at 2,643 feet (806 m) near Palm Springs up to Mountain Station at 8,516 feet (2,596 m). From there, one can easily climb the mountain face via trails. Another route is to hike the Marion Mountain Trail from near the mountain town of Idyllwild. The Cactus to Clouds Trail involves an arduous climb of approximately 10,700 feet (3,300 m) from the desert floor in Palm Springs to the summit at 10,834 feet (3,302 m). This trail has no water sources until 8,500 feet (2,600 m), so early starts are advised to avoid the temperatures which often soar above 100 °F (38 °C). Source: Wiki
In Response to Blogging University’s Weekly Photo Challenge:
Sometimes it’s fun to take a step back from interpretive challenges and just celebrate a color: green! With Monday’s vernal equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere — not to mention the St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans in many cities over the weekend — it seemed like a great time to bask in the color of spring rebirth (and leprechauns).
