Memorial Day Weekend

 Memorial Day Weekend seemed the perfect time to finally take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to San Jacinto State Park; World's largest rotating tram cars. It was 85 degrees in the parking lot and when we traveled 2.5 miles in 10 minutes the temp plummeted to 35 degrees. It's been way too long since both of my daughters, son-in-law and 2 grandsons did something like this; it felt like a mini-vacation.
 We had an early dinner at the Peaks Restaurant and then ventured out onto the decks to take in the view and of course photograph.
Unfortunately, it wasn't a  very clear evening; the digital camera wasn't able to capture the images
I hoped for. I uploaded a quite a few photos to the iPhone and used Camera+ to improve the photos
with filters, mostly the clarity one.

 Lovely alpine mountains at the summit.

It's Still Life begins June 3rd on The Pulse . I believe the Still Life I created will be posted 6/3. Thanks Seth!

Beautiful photos! Wow, what a view!!! I am SO happy you all had such a good time together. It was a great day. :) Doesn't the distance shot look like it was taken from an airplane?!
Thanks for posting these and sharing. Can't wait to see the still life posting.
