Default Sandia Mountains Pictures

I just visited ABQ for the first time and took some amazing pics of the sandias via the tramway. I was up there on the 20th and plenty of reds, yellows, and greens. I'm having problems posting and if anyone could help I will email them the pics for posting. Thanks in advance just email me at rratyni1@tampabay.rr.com. and i'll send you the pics for posting.

Much thanks Rich. And if anyone looks close at the fourth pic you can see the little hut, shack or whatever they call it at the very top of the picture. I think the tram person explained it as a place built for people who might get in trouble hiking on the mountain.

Yes. I also appreciate those pictures! Wow! The Sandias are beautiful, IMHO. I just had a question, are photos 1, 6, and 11 facing the city of ABQ or east of the Sandias. I am curious what the view on the east-side would be like...sparse?...Is there much development in that direction? THX!

Rich, as usual, your photos are great. I always enjoy seeing what comes through your camera's lens.

You have a great eye, and yes those pictures are facing the east side. It did seem sparse and I'm not really sure about development that way. Maybe one of the natives can help you with that one.

Nice pictures.

I haven't been on the Tram since I was little. I hardly remember what it was like up there. A few pictures, especially the last, did help bring back memories of what it was like, though. I've been considering going back up there lately, but we shall see whether that happens.

Great pics, thanks for sharing!

I really wish Albuquerque and NM did not have so many billboards. That sonic billboard really takes away from the one picture. They ruin our beautiful landscape. Cities that don't have billboards or that have very few are far more pleasing to the eye.
