Thirty-three Years

May 29, 2015  •  24 Comments

We fit right in with the "slow pedestrians".

 

We celebrated out 33rd wedding anniversary on Friday by riding the Sandia Peak Tram to the top of the Sandias, hiking on the south peak trail and having a picnic overlooking the Manzanos to the south and Albuquerque to the southwest from our vantage points.  We are really lucky to have the Tram. It's a 15 minute drive from our house to the Tram house at the base of the mountains, and then another 30 minutes or so to get to the top of the Sandias at 10,678 feet (3,255 m) above sea level.

The Tram car we rode up to the top of the Sandias and then back down.

View looking southwest. Downtown Albuquerque is under the rainstorm in the the center of the photo.

 

Another view of Albuquerque looking between the rocks.

 

This is the room where they have the counterweights that stretch the cables the tram cars run on and keep them tight.

 

Here are the stats on the cables, wheels and counterweights.
