I heard good things about the Sandia Peak Tramway and so with a only a few days left in Albuquerque I made way over to the mountain for the ride.

Got my ticket or Flight as they liked to call it and I was on my way.

The tram swung a bit but overall it was smooth trip considering we were dangling just a few hundred feet off the ground.

I really like this shot the tram is down in the lower part of the frame with Albuquerque in the background.

The docking was a bit of a jolt.

Once the doors opened the cold wind of the peak hit my face.  Snow clung to the ground and the peak offered some great views.

The ski hill on the backside of the mountain had not opened yet, but kept the snow on the ground better due to the shade.

The High Finance Restaurant and Tavern offered a great place to get out of the cold and have a drink.

Next time I will make reservations to dine at the restaurant as here is one of the tables with a great view at sunset.

I went outside, wind a gusting for a quick shot at sunset.
