The Stories We Could Tell

Albuquerque, NM

The drive from Prescott to Albuquerque was a long one – about 8 hours.  But we settled in before sundown and were excited to see a few sites and some friends from Santa Barbara the next day.  Our big site seeing adventure of the day was the aerial tram up to the top of the Sandia Mountains. You climb a crazy 3,819 feet in elevation in just 14 minutes. James had sweaty palms from the sheer height and I felt woozie from the elevation gain. The views from the top were amazing… and we even got to enjoy lunch at the mountain-top restaurant aptly named “High Finance.” Believe it or not, a maintenance person rides on top of the tram every morning to complete a safety check – add that to the list of job we never want to do! After checking out old town later, our night was capped off with a delicious dinner with pals from Santa Barbara who now live in Albuquerque. Thanks Abbie and Mike!
