Palm Springs: Travel Diary


A girl and her coffee! Before hitting the Palm Springs Tramway on San Jacinto Mountain I needed a little coffee and pastry fix to give me enough fuel for a five mile hike. Luckily Ernest Coffee in the uptown design district of Palm Springs offers Stumptown coffee and fresh pastries- the perfect way to start my day! Ernest Coffee is open seven days a week from 6am to 7pm and if you are looking for a place to go after hours in the back of Ernest Coffee is Bootlegger Tiki- a speakeasy with original tiki torches above the front door and delicious fresh made tiki cocktails.

After I grabbed enough fuel for the day I made my way over to the Palm Springs Tramway and climbed aboard a journey up the cliffs of Chino Canyon. The ride was about 10 minutes and takes you from 2,643 feet to 8,516 feet. At Mountain Station there are breathtaking views of the valley and the park offers 54 miles of hiking trails. There is no way to see everything in one day however I chose to do the Round Valley hike (about 5 miles round trip) that led to great views and panoramics of the valleys below.
