What a beautiful day it was for a drive and hike in the Sandia Mountains.
In the summer the Sandia’s are perfect for hiking, climbing, biking, or just going on a picnic. Hang gliding and paragliding are also popular. At the end of this blog I’ve added a Youtube video of a dad and his 4 year old daughter hang gliding off the Sandia Crest. It is a beautiful video that I think you will enjoy.
The top at Sandia Crest
You can see both sides of the mountain from the top. From here you can see Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
In the picture below is the east side of the mountain, the side of the mountain that we live on.
The radio towers are on the right here. I don’t know why I didn’t get a picture of them. In the video below you can see the towers in the background.
