While I was working for a non profit organization recently, a part of my job was to run the annual meeting at the National Environmental Health Association AEC & Exhibition. This year it was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I had never been there and that is why it is getting a spot on my blog! And it deserves some recognition, the skies were beautiful.
I rode the longest tram in the world. I had no idea it was in NM. Specifically it was Sandia Peak, elevation 10,378 ft. The tram space was much larger than I expected which was comforting as we climbed the whole 15 minutes it took to get to the top. I don’t have a fear of heights but it was a little daunting. And spectacular. The mountains in New Mexico are just lovely.
I also enjoyed some choice green chili over a breakfast burrito. Absolutely delicious. This is a must try as Albuquerque is known for their green chili. I wanted to try red but didn’t have the opportunity.
This is definitely a spot to visit, especially on a road trip if you are passing through. It would be a fun stop!
