Looming in the horizon, where ever you go around Albuquerque are the mountains, beautifully rugged and mysteriously calming. A well visited crest is Sandia Peak, partly due to the Tramway.  The Sandia Peak Tramway is the longest aerial tramway in North America and the third longest single span in the entire world. 

The 2.7 mile journey to this 11,000 foot peak provides the passengers quite a thrill ascending 4,000 feet in 15 minutes.  

The view from the tram includes all of Albuquerque and roughly 11,000 square miles the New Mexico countryside.

Once at the top, decks and walkways provide even more views.   

What an amazing experience.  Thanks Kris and John for sharing this great day.
