Those owning Albuquerque homes have the wonderful opportunity to take in some breathtaking scenery. One way to be above it all is to ride the Sandia Peak Tramway. The trip takes passengers 2.7 miles above broad canyons in a beautiful desert setting. The view at sunset gives a unique view of the many striking colors that adorn the desert sky. Enjoy the skies from the observation deck that sits on top of Sandia Peak resting at 10,378 feet. Many Albuquerque homes have beautiful views, but none can match the top of Sandia Peak.
Enjoy the sights of Cibola National Forest, which includes 11,000 square miles with views of the Rio Grande Valley and all of the glory of New Mexico. Come check out all that this area has to offer, including hiking, the tramway, and even skiing in the winter. It is an outdoor paradise enjoyed by those who own Albuquerque homes. It is even a great place to escape the heat during the summer. Temperatures at the top of Sandia Peak can be as much as 30 degrees cooler than the temperature at the bottom. A short drive away on the eastern edge of Albuquerque, the Sandia Peak Tramway sits in the Sandia Foothills and is a must see destination.
