Squaw Valley tram ride

DSC04523Today we rode the aerial tram to the top of the mountain in Squaw Valley. This is a different tram than the one I rode growing up. It’s smaller and doesn’t swing as much when it goes over the towers, which is great. I guess they thought it was time to stop sending people sprawling. I never saw that happen, but it must have sometimes.

The top of the tram is called High Camp.

There were a lot of people because today it’s Labor Day weekend. People were walking along the trails enjoying the amazing views and somewhat hazy mountain air.

We saw a few variety of bees on the wildflowers.
