We haven't hiked for the past two months because of the 115 degrees summer temperatures. So this morning we decided to "get out of Dodge" and go to San Jacinto Mountain to beat the heat. A while back, we purchased a Summer Pass at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to ride a rotating tramcar to get there. The pass allows us to ride up the tram as many times as we want until the end of this month. So we thought we better use it before it expires.

The Mount San Jacinto State Park Area has around 54 miles of hiking trails. Some of the trails go as high as 10,000 feet up the mountain. Today, however, we only did the nature walk trails. We're planning to try one of the hiking trails later this week.
