The coolest part of the ride was that the car rotated! It's actually one of the largest rotating tram cars in the world.
The ride takes you from the desert floor to a wooded, rocky wilderness that is completely different from below. It’s an incredible change of landscape to go from one to the other in such a short time.
We hopped off the tram at The Valley Station at the top, and immediately started taking in the views from all around. We spent a good amount of time staring out into the desert then turning around and admiring the forest behind us just absolutely baffled the two could be this close together.
Being atop the mountain also means a change in temperature from the desert below. It can sometimes be up to 20-30 degrees different from Palm Springs. While sitting and enjoying a snack we actually wished we had brought wind breakers with us, even though it was well over 100 degrees down below!
Until next time, read what other things we did in Palm Springs below!
