Sandia Peak, Albuquerque

At the small town of Albuquerque,  we took the cable car to the Sundia peak. It was interesting to see a lot of snow up on this mountain, in midst of a dessert. The view from the top was great.











We also wanted to visit a Meteor crater but then for some reason thought this would be a similar site and thus almost reached till the entrance and decided to head back.



The drive back was fun. It was snowing very badly in Colorado.
