Sandia Peak Tramway

Coming back from California earlier this year we stayed a night in Albuquerque. Probably the most famous attraction there is the Sandia Peak Tramway that takes you to the crestline of the Sandia Mountains.
I hope you're not afraid of heights before you board and commit yourself to the ride.
And it is certainly high, as it's got the world's third-longest single span.
Next week I'll show you photos I took on the ride. I'm linking this to the Shadow Shot Sunday meme for the second photo, to Our World Tuesday, and to Scenic Sunday.

  13. About Copan building, I agree with you, I wouldn't want to live in such a large building. I prefer to live in a house, near the ground, the flowers, the green.

  18. When I was a teenager, an uncle (who lived in Albuquerque) drove my grandmother, cousin and me to the Sandia peak. I was tense the whole time.
