The Coachella Valley floor rings in at 112 while a 2 minute gondola ride up to Mt. San Jacinto brings the temp down 40 degrees. Reluctantly I press my face up against the glass and do everything in my power not to lose blood flow to my legs. Feeling the air seep through the worn weather stripping keeps my attention, yet renders my arms useless. Reaching the top never felt so far away. First steps off and the sweet smell of pine reminds me the escape that nature promises.
