Last night's view from Sandia Peak

Last night we met at the bottom of the tram and rode up well before sunset. By the time we got to the top, we had this amazing view from just below the cloud line. The sun was streaming through the moisture and creating the most amazing white light.

As we ate our dinner at a table by the windows, we watched a huge storm roll in, creating its own cloud over the city and then drawing it back up again.
By the time we jumped onto the tram to go back down, it was full dark and the rain was pounding. (I didn't know they operated that thing in lightning!) So yeah, according to Junior, it was the best birthday dinner ever -- mainly because of the thunderous ending!


  1. Wow! I love going up to Sandia when I'm out there. I too didn't know they ran it when thunderstorms. Beautiful shots. Makes me wish I was in Albuquerque again.

  2. What a wonderful inspiring
