Ascent Trip Report

Had a 3-day weekend to get away and realized that I could take the Palm Springs tram up quite a ways. I snowshoed from the top of the tram to a nice flat spot under the summit and set up camp. Since that didn't take long, I headed for the summit. I made it to the top by mid-afternoon and then headed back to camp. After a night's rest, I ventured further afield on Saturday, just wandering the San Jacintos, not going up any peaks. I then snowshoed out to the tram on Sunday morning. Great weather. Didn't see many people for the ease of access to the high mountains provided by the tram.
