hangin around, killin time
I had a few hours to kill today before my flight out of Albuquerque, so I went up to the Sandia Peak Tramway and took a ride on the World's longest aerial tramway. It took me up to the top of Sandia Peak, which is where my friend Mick had tried to take me on Saturday after the TinkerTown Museum (from the other side of the mountain), but the storms and fog got too bad that day so we had to turn around. The clouds coming over the mountain are apparently typical for this year. They're very cool to see from the ground, but they're something else to go through in the air!
I decided to cap the day off by revisiting the Frontier diner down by University of New Mexico (another place Mick introduced me too). It seems to be pretty popular no matter what time of day. I opted against the green chiles this time.
