Sandia Peak Tramway, Albuquerque

One of the top tourist attractions in New Mexico.

I took the Sandia Peak Tramway trip on one of the snowiest days of the year.

Views were cool. But limited.

The Tramway provides access to a ski hill on the other side of the mountain.

In summer this is a terrific way to access hiking and mountain biking trails.

Still … I’m glad I saw it. Highly recommended.

Sandia is wrongly advertised as the “longest in the world”.

The entertaining cable car announcers grudgingly concede that Dajti Ekspres cable car in Albania is longer.

And I’ve been to Merida, Venezuela. That series of four aerial tramways – reopened April 2016 – goes 1640 – 4765 meters making it the highest tourist aerial tramway in the world. It’s 12.5 km long. Far longer than Sandia.

I love cable cars and have taken a number of these – 10 Most Amazing Aerial Lifts In The World

Sandia did not make that list. It did make this one – Amazing Aerial Tramways of the World

What’s unique about Sandia is that it has only two support towers.

Man in the High Castle – season 2

I read one bad review. And almost decided not to bother with season 2.

But with Dictator Trump looming this TV series seemed too timely to pass up.

As it turned out, I’m glad I continued watching. Season 2 is not as good as season 1, but I still recommend it.

Click PLAY or watch a trailer on YouTube.

The Man in the High Castle is an American dystopian alternative history television series produced by Amazon …

The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. Taking place in 1962—in an alternate history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II and subdivided the world, splitting the United States into two powers, the Greater Nazi Reich and the Japanese Pacific States …

Season 3 has been green lit.

Canada is great. But the winter weather #sucks(™).

I’m off for a couple of weeks hiking. I’ve never visited New Mexico.
