Sandia Mountain Crest at 10,678 Feet

Last Saturday after we finished at Tinkertown we continued driving on up to the peak of the Sandia Mountain Crest – at 10,678 feet!

It was a beautiful drive up. At the crest there was a wonderful breeze. Fiona got to look through the binoculars out over Albuquerque. Unfortunately we also saw the smoke from the fire in Los Alamos. That night we could smell the smoke in the house.

What beautiful scenery surrounded us – except for the towers!

Fiona was a bit braver this day and climbed some rock.

Joel was asked by a couple if he’d use their camera to take their picture. Afterward he asked if they might be Irish. Sure enough! We had a wonderful chat with this couple visiting from mid-west Ireland. They even took our family picture before leaving.
