Before summer 2016 becomes history I decided to go on a staycation to Palm Springs! It was such a beautiful experience! From the moment I got there to the moment I left I was reminded of how much serenity there is to this unpredictable and precarious world. 

I arrived at Palm Springs Aerial Tramway then my journey to the top began. The ten minute tramway ride rotates as it rises above the deserts allowing everyone to get a 360 view. Halfway up I felt my hands getting clammy because I was a bit intimidated by the level of elevation we were reaching. I had about a 2 minute mental breakdown that I kept to myself. I thought to myself, wow, maybe I do have fear of heights. I kept my composure using Snapchat as a distraction. There's no turning back now, plus it was too good to be true!  The location was breathtaking, literally. Still, I was in awe even though I was a little nervous. As the tramway got closer and closer to 8500+ elevation my nerves were calming down and relieved once it arrived to the top. I exited the tramway and arrived at San Jacinto Mountains! The weather was about 15 to 20 degrees cooler, and it was absolutely refreshing. Being that it was my first time, I was very observant and as I looked around almost everyone was dressed in hiking gear, and prepared to explore the mountains. But then there's me in a sundress about to take lots of mental and digital photos to document. But even without the hiking gear, I got in touch with nature. The fresh atmosphere gave me a feeling of restoration, making me forget all that worries me. I would definitely revisit this location to do a lot more exploring! If you love to hike, this is a place to go! Next time I'll be prepared and geared up for action. 

In the meantime, keep in touch! I have a few more photos and short stories to share from the trip!
