(Note: I have disabled comments. Like I've said before, I'm not blogging anymore for anyone else. I'm blogging only for myself to journal my rides and adventures. Those curt, thoughtless comments I have received over the last few months haven't been worth allowing anyway. But mostly, I'm really just not interested in comments at all. My blog is for me. If anyone enjoys reading my "scrapbook-style" posts and viewing my photos, that's fine with me. But comments aren't necessary, nor wanted. But thanks anyway!)
Kendra and I, with our brave and willing horses, stood on the very edge of the rock cliff on Sandia Crest and we all took in the expansive vistas to the East, South and West.
From this vantage point, looking South, we could see the famous Sandia Peak Tramway down below us at 10, 378 ft elevation, on the ridge of Sandia Peak. The Tram carries passengers 2.7 miles in 15 minutes, from 6, 000 ft elevation, down in Albuquerque up to Sandia Peak, where there is also a fine dining restaurant.
If you look closely, you can see the cables of the tram between Apache’s ears!
Kendra loves being up in these amazingly beautiful high mountain places as much as I do. We were both grinning from ear-to-ear, while Bailey and Apache made lovey-dovey eyes at each other.
I took a photo of my friend Paula and her handsome mule Tecumseh on the edge of Sandia Crest with the Kiwanis Cabin behind them.
Once we arrived at Kiwanis Cabin on 10, 600 ft elevation Sandia Crest, we dismounted and enjoyed a picnic lunch and gave our equines a rest.
Kendra and her Bailey Boy.
Apache was happy to take a little siesta after she shared an apple and some dried pineapple with me. I sat on that lower branch below her nose and munched some beef jerky, while my sweet mountain trail horse napped.
Notice the stone cabin in the background of the photo above? That cabin will play a prominent part in my next post.
