Before moving to Albuquerque, I lived along the Gulf of Mexico in an area that was a mere 20 feet above sea level.
Surrounding citys were susceptible to flooding while the mere system of an oncoming hurricane was enough to put the fear of God in the minds of all the locals in town.
But Albuquerque is a town that is over 5,000 feet above sea level in multiple sites just west of the Sandia Mountains that comprise the town plus its suburbs. I was ecstatic to be out of the region of hurricanes, but now I had to contend with hotter un-even temperatures plus dust storms that would cause myself and others to pause in my tracks plus ride them out whenever a single would grip the city. If you struggle with sinus plus respiratory dust sensitivities appreciate I do, a dust storm can be a serious threat to your physical health. However, sometimes I get lovely weather in Albuquerque plus can take the Sandia Peak tramway up the side of the mountain range. My favorite cannabis dispensary in Albuquerque is situated in Los Volcanes on the opposite side of the town from the Sandia Mountains. I have a cruise across Interstate 40 until I reach the exit for Interstate 25 to take myself and others north. Interstate 25 takes myself and others to the exit for Tramway Road. Taking this east will eventually bring myself and others to the Tramway Trailhead plus then the Sandia Peak Tramway. With a cannabis pen in my pocket, there’s no better way to experience the beauty of Albuquerque than from high up in the cable car, 5,000 feet above the city.
