2021 Albuquerque Day 03 Petroglyphs & Sandia

Thursday, October 7, 2021

This morning we sleep in a little because we know we won’t tomorrow. We head out after breakfast to see the Petroglyphs that we hear are nearby.

We find the Petroglyphs and walk a trail for a half mile or so before we hear they close the trail early and we have to leave. That’s okay, we have seen these things in different places around the world and as impressive as they are, it is something I never really get excited about.

We then head for Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, hoping for a sunset ride and we are not disappointed with our timing. We have to wait in line for almost an hour but the timing works perfectly!

The views are superb as we go up!

There is a restaurant at the top of the mountain and we reserve a table. Dinner is great although the dining room looks out over the wrong side of the mountain and the view goes to black for the most part. Then we get in line for the Tram down the mountain and ride down around 9PM.

We get back to our condo before 10PM and it is a good thing as we will be arising very early tomorrow! See you then!
