Sandia Peak Tramway is always a pleasure. We recommend as a must visit for locals and for travelers. Expect lots of sunshine.

It was during the Ballon Festival and packed. I had been there before and had dinner at High Finance. A new restaurant will open this spring and the trip will be wonderful with the opening of a dining destination.
