Albuquerque Warnings and Dangers: 34 reviews and 24 photos
All it takes is a few minutes of rain for the arroyos to become raging rivers. It doesn't have to be raining where you are either. If you notice the picture, it's dry and not even raining. Your kids could be playing in the arroyo and suddenly be overcome by a rushing river from out of no where.
Sometimes you run into really bad drivers out there, but I guess that's true of any place. Just becareful on the roads. Hate to see people get hurt.
Albuquerque is 5,000 feet above sea level. The Sandia Mountains are 10,300+ feet above sea level. Some people who aren't acustomed to such high altitudes sometimes suffer from altitude sickness when first visiting the city.
Albuquerque is in the middle of the desert. Don't underestimate the desert heat. Many people don't realize the danger the heat poses on their bodies.
