Wowzers, we didn’t plan for the super late start but hey it gave us a beautiful sunset to admire on the way down. Gusty winds were brutal at the Tram parking but definitely subsided as we headed up the Tram to the San Jacinto State Park TH. We got a bust of gusty winds here and there but nothing too drastic to make us turn around or feel like we were freezing. The most exciting part was seeing ice on the ground. A glimpse of winter coming to the mountains soon.
Overall we had an amazing day, and set us on the right foot for a positive week ahead.
