On 3/15, we drove to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram.
It was a little bit of a drive…
I didn’t get very many good pictures on the way up the mountain….too crowded.
Here we are at the top! What a view of the valley!
My hubby admires the view.
There were trails to explore too.
I found a great big pinecone!
And a big tree.
My hubby is so strong, he was able to push that big tree….just a little!
It was a little chilly up there on the mountain, but the sun helped keep us warm!
There was snow up there too……ahhhhhh! Reminders of winter back home!
I walked between this giant log.
Awwww, my happy hubby.
He’s showing off more of his strength.
Back towards the building/tram.
Now we’re on our way back down the mountain on the tram!
I was able to get much better pictures this time.
Pictures just don’t do it justice.
You can see the entire valley from up here.
The tram has a floor that slowly moves, allowing everyone to get a 350-degree view of the scene!
We’re almost back to the bottom!
This is the tram.
Safely at the bottom once more, we got a picture together using the camera’s timer.
See the little salamander??
Driving back down the mountain.
A STORY: Squeezing Oranges
One day, my hubby decided to make freshly squeezed orange juice. I decided to help — mostly by taking pictures.
We picked lots of oranges and tangerines.
We brought them inside.
We did it the old-fashioned way — by hand.
After lots of hard work….look how much we made!
And look how much of a mess we made!
It was lots of hard work, but let me tell you, it was sooooooo delicious. :]
This is “The Wash” – where all the rain water drains from the mountains after a heavy rain (which only happens about 4 or 5 days out of the year).
Palm trees! What a wonderful sight.
More oranges…..this time, using the fruit picker.
Country club building.
Pool of water on the golf course. Do you see the crane?
You have to watch out for those sprinklers when you’re walking around the golf course. It’s hazardous out there!
Flowers were blooming everywhere. I love pansies!
I don’t know what this is called. Yellow flower, I guess.
Snapping dragons are so fun.
