I have found it hard not to love this country even though I have only seen a very small part of it.
Today we drove one hour from 29 Palms to Palm Springs. Here myself and a friend caught the Aerial Tram up 8516ft to the top of the Mount San Jacinto State Park.
Unfortunately, there was only time to traverse only a small section of the mountain before we had to head back down. However, the view was spectacular.
Plan for the next trip is to walk a few of the trails over a period of one or two days.
Enjoy the view.
