"Down here where I live (Coachella Valley) we have the Palm Springs Tramway, it's a SUPER fun place to go hike! I know plenty of SoCal people who love to go hiking on the tram all year long! And in the winter time we do get a bit of snow up there! It's a very lovely place to go visit and suggest anyone passing through go up and visit the nature! It's also pretty cool to go from a sweltering desert floor up the VERY high tram and be in a forest in about 15-20mins. "
