It took me an hour and a half to walk the 3.7 mile Tram Road from the visitor center on Palm Canyon to the Tramway valley station this morning. Round trip from my doorstep in Mountain Gate (across the street) was eight miles and took three hours.
This video was taken about half way up the road, around 7:30 am this morning. I’m getting ready for this year’s Tram Road Challenge 6K Run/Walk in Palm Springs, California, being held next week on Saturday October 25, 2014. The Challenge is a fund raiser for The United Way of the Desert and Make a Difference Day.
If you don’t have other plans and enjoy steep, strenuous walks, come and join me next Saturday.
