Travel by Tram

Albuquerque has spectacular views from its extremely safe Sandia tramway. According to the tramway, “it ascends from a base elevation of 6,559 feet (1,999 m) to a top elevation of 10,378 feet (3,163 m).

Great views
More great views from a trail near the tram
Great views at the top
The leaves are starting to turn at the top of the mountaim
Many folks ride the tram up and hike, ski, or bicycle down.
This heavy equipment looked like it was balanced on a sinkhole
A new restaurant is being built to replace the old one on top of the tramway
My brother and his husband seemed to enjoy the views

Afterwards, we stopped for food and drinks at the delightful Sandiago Grill at the base of the tram. In addition to fabulous views from inside and outside seating, their menu offerings have been jazzed up. The prices seemed a little higher than the last time I was there but are reasonable for the quality. My fish tacos were delicious. Unfortunately, this picture was taken after I’d messed up their plating. Forgive me, I was hungry!

I love to travel, do arts and crafts and photography. But most of all, I like to combine them all.
