Weekend Reflections / Palm Springs Tramway

 
My previous post showed the Palm Springs Tramway and the top of Mt. San Jacinto Mountain.
This is a reflection of the mountain top in the window of the tram station.

 
This is another reflection in the same window but in a section that had better light.
You can see the cables leading up to the mountain top.
It was very cold and windy on the top and a pleasant 65 degrees on the desert floor.
The base station is at the 2000 ft. elevation.
You can see lights glowing from inside the building!

WOW! These are so awesome!
I agree, looks as if I'm looking directly at that gorgeous view.
Well done.

A beautiful place and a fantastic tour. I was there in 1994, and it was one of the highlights of my three-week visit to the US at that time.

I'm enjoying your photos from the tram...as I would never, NEVER travel on it myself. (My palms are sweaty just thinking about it.) Great reflection!

Great reflections I especially like the top picture. It's cool that you saw the house in my post.

I was at the base of that tram in the mid 1970's and I really wanted to go up but my mother said we didn't have time but we would next time. We'll, there never was a next time. I'm going to have to have a talk with mom. :)

looks c-c-c-c-old!

Love your first shot. The second has nothing like the same elegance, even though it's hard to see what's going on.

Neat shot Carolyn. Looks like a photo perched on an easel.

Regina said...

How beautiful. Great reflections Carolyn.
Have a great weekend.

The best reflection is one that you don't know is a reflection. Simply amazing!

I remember when we were there there was zero visibility, but the climb up to the top was well worth it. We did a little hiking.

I love the top photo.

Carol said...

Great photos, Carolyn, and a beautiful view from the tram.
