This past Tuesday we took a tram from Palm Springs at the desert floor up to the Mount San Jacinto State Park. (www.pstramway.com) Then we climbed 6 miles to San Jacinto Peak. Our friend Dave took this picture of me at the top. I really enjoyed the 6 miles up, but the 6 miles down were killer at the end. I'm doubtful for Half Dome now, but the hiking we have done this year has been really fun and challenging.
