  Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway (Mark Jochim 5/29/93)
by MarkJochim

The Sandia Peak Tramway - the world's longest, extending 2.7 miles to the summit of 10,360-foot Sandia Peak in northeastern Albuquerque. It's really nice to make the trip to the top in late afternoon and then watch the sunset from the mountain. The (very expensive) High Finance Restaurant is just north of the upper tram terminal; a nice place to have a cold drink.
