Jake was visiting and we went down to Palm Springs and took the opportunity to take the aerial tramway up a vertical mile, and hiked to San Jacinto. This is the second tallest mountain in Southern California, at 10.834'. It is an 11 mi RT hike from the tramway, with 2400' or so of gain, and is shockingly beautiful, even more so considering the desert the park is surrounded by.
