Ariel Tram in Palm Springs
Palm Springs Travel Blog› entry 1 of 3 › view all entries
I get to Vegas...walk around a bit and go to get on my flight. And guess what it was....a really, really tiny plane!!! I believe it was a Bombardier CRJ-200, but I'm not too sure. But that's besides the point.
So I get into palm springs at 1:30AM!!! Which is like 4:30AM PGH time...so it's late. And the next day we wake up to go to the aerial Tram!!! Yay...it was a fun time. it takes you up 1 and 1/2 miles to 8500 ft above sea level and you're hanging on this tram way from these cables spinning so you can see the whole picture on the way up. How they advertise it is by saying you see all the eco zones between Mexico and Alaska on the way up. It was quite an experience...you should try to make it out there at some point if you can. But it was scary...see I'm scared of heights...and everytime the tram gets to a stansion it drops and it's sort of freaky.
So we went back to the bottom and the next day I got to play their Wii...which was really cool....that is a fun system...I encourage everyone to buy one! And we went to dinner. After dinner we were watching TV...I got a migraine and fell asleep with it on...to wake up and have to run to the bathroom. I thought I got food poisoning...I haven't felt like that since freshman year of college when I did get food poisoning. Which we thought was strange because I ate the same thing nicole and david did except I had lettus and tomato on my taco's and they didn't...we figured that was the issue there! So I get up every hour all night to run to the bathroom and I go to the airport the next day to go to Phoenix...the good thing is by the time I get to the airport I feel better and I went and got some soup.
