Well, it only took us six – yes, SIX years to do the Tram. Travaguy is originally from the Central Valley in California and his grandparents currently reside in the Palm Springs area. In fact, his grandparents’ patio behind their house has a fantastic view of the mountain – and if you look really hard, you can even see the path of the tram from their patio table on a clear day.
We have visited Palm Springs many times over the past six years – in fact, I believe we’ve been to Palm Springs five times and this was the first time we found the time to experience the tramway in all it’s glory.
The path the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway follows is a valley and gateway to the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains on the southern side of the Coachella Valley in the very south central region of California. Part of the reason it took us so long to go was that I thought it was going to be overrated…like a gondola at the MN state fair. I was soooo wrong! Here’s picture proof of how cool it really was:
