Southern California Extremes

Took the rotating aerial tram to the San Jacinto Wilderness to escape the triple digit heat in the desert.  Rising 8500 feet above the desert floor, crisp 70 degree coolness greeted us.  The air was sweet with the scent of sugar pines and white fir whose large trunks dwarfed us on the trail.  The desert below was a dusty grid speckled with tiny windmills and neighborhoods. 

Returning to sea level, we swam in the fading afternoon light and napped before making a pilgrimage to Pappy and Harriet's for some BBQ, live music, and pool.
