Spring Break happened here. We didn’t do much, but we DID take a trip to the local San Gabriel mountains. We rode this cool little gondola-thingy that runs on cables, up the side of the mountain.
It starts at the base of Mt. San Jacinto in Palm Springs, and passes over 5 towers as it’s pulled up the cables to the top of the mountain. So awesome!
From the tramway’s mountain station, we meandered around a few rocks and trails. The girls are perfectly content not exploring, but finding new things to sit on:
We took a very short trail walk around the valley. The girls loved hiking!
… Emily pooped out pretty quickly though.
After a long day of exploring and tram rides, we loaded up into the car for a quiet, restful drive home.
That was our one big Spring Break event: a day trip on a Southern Cali Mountain adventure! If you’re ever in the Palm Springs area (about 1 1/2 hours from San Diego), I highly recommend taking the Palm Springs Aerial Tram to the top of the mountain. Bring good walking shoes, water, and a jacket-it was in the 80’s in Palm Springs and in the 50’s at the top of the mountain!
