Albuquerque Weather Forecast, NM  

 Sandia Peak Tramway

A trip on the world’s longest aerial tramway transports you above deep canyons and breathtaking terrain a distance of 2.7 miles. See some of nature’s more dramatic beauty unfold before you. At sunset the desert skies produce a spectacular array of color, and your vantage point from the observation deck atop 10,378 foot Sandia Peak in the Cibola National Forest affords an 11,000 square-mile panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and the Land of Enchantment. Located on the eastern edge of Albuquerque in the Sandia Foothills at the end of Tramway Road.

Bullet The Turquoise Trail, A Spectacular Drive on Hwy. 14 from Santa Fe to I-40.
You drive back into New Mexico history, along the Ortiz Mountains as the land stretches into breathtaking vistas. Venture off the freeway and onto the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway, and you'll see what we mean. The Scenic and Historic Area encompasses 15,000 square miles in the heart of central New Mexico, linking Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Enjoy a breathtaking view from atop Sandia Crest, then drive back into history through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos, now coming alive with art, crafts, theater, music, museums and restaurants.
Turquoise Trail
Sky City Acoma  The Best Pueblo in the Sky - Acoma: about an hour West of Albuq. off I-40
History whispers in the rough dirt streets and you catch your breath as you gaze out from this mesa across - Acoma's sacred land. Coronado thought he'd found one of the fabled seven cities of gold when he first saw it. "Too bad he was wrong," one mesa top tour guide opined. "We'd be doing things a lot differently up here." Try to see it on one of the feast days that are open to the public, when the main square fills with dancers and the mood is celebration. Be sure to go back down the steep, ancient footpath that for hundreds of years was the only access.
Easy hike along the banks of the Rio Tesuque. Can be hiked year round. Great places to picnic along the trail.
Directions: go north on Bishop's Lodge Road. Almost 1 mile beyond the entrance to Bishop's Lodge the road takes a 90 degree turn to the left, turn right here on to a dirt road, County Road 72A. In a few minutes you will see signs for parking. The trail begins just a few minutes more up the road on the right immediately crossing the creek on a foot bridge.
Big Tesuque
Taos Pueblo

 The Best Pueblo with a River Running through It. Taos Pueblo, north of Taos on 285.

Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. The multi-storied adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1000 years. We welcome you to visit our village when you travel to northern New Mexico.
