"ALBUQUERQUE!" Albuquerque by GracesTrips

This is me at the peak of the Sandia Mountain. We rode the longest tramway in the USA to get there!

A spur of the moment trip was planned during Labor Day weekend. We had received $200 worth of vouchers from Delta because our trip to Maui was delayed for over 8 hours. So, we used them to fly to Albuquerque, New Mexico. We then rented a car to drive back to Los Angeles. Renting a car isn't usually too expensive but to rent a car and return it to a different destination is. They call this a one-way drop off. But, it was worth it. I had not been on a road trip this long before and we split the drive back to LA into two days (about 12 hours of driving). The landscapes of New Mexico are just beautiful and the food is extremely flavorful!
