Snow Day up at San Jacinto State Park

Aloha Everyone,

One of the wishes my Granddaughter had was to play in the real snow. Today, it came true.

Our destination was the Palm Springs Aerial Tranway. The recent winter storm not only brought much needed rain to Southern California but snow and lots of it.

The place was over packed with visitors many with small children who were experiencing snow for the first time in their young lives.

The five of us bravely joined the crowd standing in lines for about 5 hours in all. The 10 minutes ride in the World's Largest Rotating Tram Car offered us spectacular views of rugged snow covered canyons and sheer cliffs. Every time our tram car made a turn, our granddaughter squeezed my hand and cheered. However the best part for her was being able to play in snow.

We had snowball fights and she happily ran around to select suitable mounds to slide down in a snow sled. By the time we went down the mountain, the sun was going down and it was getting colder but her joy and happiness made it all worth awhile. Today was a memorable and a very special day.

Aloha -- Cathi
