“I take all day to climb mountains and then spend about 10 minutes at the top admiring the view.” ~ Sebastian Thrun

 Today we went to Sandia Peak which is part of the Cibola National Forest. The Sandia Peak Tram runs through the foothills in Albuquerque through five natural life zones to the top of the Sandia Mountains, which are more than 10,000 feet above sea level. The elevation literally takes your breath away.

The tram was crowded (I imagine Covid is a thing of the past) and we were so lucky that there was a power failure and so it needed to reboot and we hung for 10 long minutes in a packed sardine car.

But it was worth it when you got to the top ( safely).

The ride down the mountain was uneventful and enjoyable.

Every experience is made better when one can share it with good friends. Martin Luther King had a famous quote about the mountaintop. but Tom Haas says everything so eloquently.

“We’ve been to the mountaintop and back down again.” ~Tom Haas

“When you start to feel down, it might just be time to change your altitude.”
