Sandia Peak just northeast of Albuquerque offers numerous trails that dart into and through the forest as you make your way to the peak. I caught this scene on my way back down to the tramway as evening was settling in. Notice the long shadows and warmer color that comes with the sun being lower in the sky. More on this subject in the future when I have a better photo to showcase. Today is also my dad’s birthday. Happy birthday, Dad. Wanna do Mount Charleston with me?
