The city of Albuquerque has purchased 66 acres along old Route 66 as part of an effort to preserve the Tijeras Arroyo as open space.

The land is already home to deer, bears and bald eagles. The city wants to add walking trails so people can enjoy it, too, officials said.

The purchase cost about $2.9 million.

This sounds very good. It doesn't really surprise me, since I think I heard at one point that Mayor Berry lives in the Four Hills Area. I wonder if you could get any really good views from these walking trails of things such as Sandia Crest, the Volcanoes, Downtown, or Uptown.

Oop.. i should edit my response to, kinda..

you can't see the Crest as you are in the canyon between the Sandia & Manzano Mts. You can, however see the mountains to the southwest of Abq very nicely.
