We spent a week in the Palm Springs area, visiting with family. One afternoon, we took the Palm Springs tramway, something we had never done when we lived in Southern California.

Here is the opposite car, as it passes us. We were on our way down, it was going up.

There was plenty of snow at the top of the tramway.

While attending the Hamfest in Yuma, Arizona, we heard about a balloon launch. Turns out that this was NOT the launch that was publicized. However, it was quite colorful, and drifting over us at the County Fairgrounds, near the airport.
