2015/10/18 Hiking Around San Jacinto State Park

I had been to the Palm Spring cable car in 2012, but didn't get to see much of anything when I was at the top, so I had made a note to come back with Jennifer and do the hike to the top, Mt Jacinto. So, we made a point to hit that as part of the last day of our 2015 Palm Springs Trip.

Sadly, with the weather, it was cloudy most days, and very cloudy on the LA Basin side, which is the view we were supposed to get at the top.

We showed up at 09:00 on a sunday morning and took the cable car up:




After a quick look at the displays, we went to get a permit to hike to Mt San Jacinto Peak







Sadly, the weather wasn't great, so there was no view when we were on the ridge:


made it to the peak, it wasn't hard

We then got back to the tram to get back down and for me to do a quick RC flight before getting back to the airport to fly home:



The flight back was interesting due to weather, but we got home ok :)
