At The Top

 Ty and I got to celebrate our 8 year anniversary yesterday.
We took the Palm Springs tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto.
 The views were amazing and the temperatures were so much cooler than they had been in Palm Springs where we started. It was strange to leave the desert and just 10 minutes later be in the mountains and wilderness.
 There were lots of little hiking trails.
 I had chosen the very wrong footwear for our little expedition.
 Ty was very impressed with the state park and started planning a backpacking trip while we were still there.
By the time the sun started to set I had to put on my jacket. It was nice to feel the cool. We had dinner at the Peaks restaurant inside the wilderness station and ate the best calamari and filet minion we have ever had!
We took the tram back down the mountain after dark. It was freezing at the top but when we arrived back in the desert the temps were hot again.
It was a great evening and the perfect little retreat.
