Palm Trees and Snowflakes

This past week’s storm brought the first snow to our desert mountains this season. Nothing is more beautiful than looking up at the mountains on a sunny desert day and see the snow capping the peaks.

Now is a great time to take the Palm Springs Tram up to Mt. San Jacinto, take a walk in the snow, have a cocktail at the restaurant and enjoy the view.

If you haven’t taken the tram. You are missing an amazing ride. Where else can you travel from the desert floor to a mountain forest in 10 minutes. Its gorgeous!

Bring your sweater, it can be a 30 degree difference from town to the top.
