Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

For this week’s Photo Challenge, I invite you “inside” the 18-foot-diameter (5.5 m) Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which takes you up 8,500 ft. to the summit of Mt. San Jacinto, in Palm Springs, California. I was there just two days ago, and here’s proof of that.

Getting close to the top.


That’s the final destination. You can see a tram just about to arrive there.

I loved the ride and of course took hundreds of photos on the way up and down, as well as at the top of the mountain. This is a great ride that I recommend to anyone who doesn’t have fear of heights. 🙂

Travel Theme: Temptation

This week, Ailsa’s Travel Theme is “Temptation.” That immediately made me think of food, not only because there’s a lot of tempting food out there, but also because eating is such an important part of understanding and appreciating the cultures of the places we visit. Here are some tempting foods from my travels.
